In this paper, we investigated the propagation of Rayleigh waves in a homogeneous, pre-stressed elastic layer of finite thickness over a homogeneous, pre-stressed elastic half - space subjected to the rotation. The dispersion equation has been derived for a layer over a half-space, when both media are considered as pre-stressed and the effect of initial rotation shown in earlier investigators, is in general not applicable to the case of pre-stressed media. The results indicate that the effect of the rotation on the Propagation of Rayleigh waves in Fiber- reinforced isotropic solid thermo-viscoelastic media are very pronounced.
