In this article, analytic expressions for the frequency wave number spectra are derived for the displacement and rotational components at the ground surface of a micropolar elastic half-space. The ground motion is caused by buried sources described in terms of unit impulsive force and micro-moments. Closed-form analytic expressions for both plane strain and anti-plane strain conditions are established. In the sequel, Green's functions for reduced micro polar half-space where the couple stresses are zero and the stress tensor is nonsymmetric are also presented. Numerical results are presented for anti-plane strain case. The derived expressions can be used to simulate rotational and displacement components of ground motion during earthquakes. © 2015 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
