In this paper, we analyze the propagation of shear horizontal surface waves in a dielectric layer/piezoelectric substrate structure covered by a viscous liquid layer of finite thickness. The complex dispersion equation is derived. The numerical results show that the liquid layer thickness and dimensionless real-valued wave number have significant eff ects on the attenuation and phase velocity. In addition, it is found that in general the influence of the liquid layer viscosity on the phase velocity is opposite to that of the liquid layer density.
