This paper is concerned with the inverse source problem of the time-harmonic elastic waves. A novel non-iterative reconstruction scheme is proposed for determining the elastic body force by using the multi-frequency Fourier expansion. The key ingredient of the approach is to choose appropri-ate admissible frequencies and establish an relationship between the Fourier coefficients and the coupled-wave field of compressional wave and shear wave. Both theoretical justifications and numerical examples are presented to verify the validity and robustness of the proposed method.
