**ABSTRACT**

Rayleigh wave speed in a rotating transversely isotropic material is studied. Speed in some transversely isotropic materials is calculated by choosing an angular velocity. Rayleigh wave speed is also calculated in non-rotating medium. It is observed that rotational effect plays a significant role and increases the speed of Rayleigh waves.
