The propagation of circular crested waves in a fluid saturated incompressible porous plate is analyzed. The frequency equations, for symmetric and anti‐symmetric waves, connecting the phase velocity with wave number are derived. At short wave length limits the frequency equations for symmetric and antisymmetric waves in a stress free plate reduce to Rayleigh type surface wave frequency equation and the finite thickness plate appears as a semi‐infinite medium. The results at various steps are compared with the corresponding results of classical theory and finally the variations of phase velocity, attenuation coefficient with wave number and displacements amplitudes with distance from the boundary of the plate is presented graphically and discussed.
