Propagation of SH-type guided waves in a layered structure with an invariant initial stress is studied, where a piezoelectric thin layer is perfectly bonded on a piezomagnetic substrate. Both the layer and the substrate possess transversely isotropic property. The dispersion relations of SH waves are obtained for four kinds of different electro-magnetic boundary conditions. The effects of initial stress, thickness ratio and electro-magnetic boundary conditions on the propagation behaviors are analyzed in detail. The numerical results show that: 1) The positive initial stresses make the phase velocity increasing, while the negative initial stresses decrease the phase velocity; 2) The smaller the thickness ratio of a piezoelectric layer to a piezomagnetic substrate, the larger the phase velocity of SH-type guided wave propagating in the corresponding layered structure; 3) The electrical boundary conditions play a dominant role in the propagating characteristics. Moreover the phase velocities for the electrically shorted surface are smaller than that for the open case. The obtained results are useful for understanding and design of the electromagnetic acoustic wave and microwave devices.
