Technological advancements in composite fabrics, non-destructive checking out, and sign processing in addition to biomedical functions, have encouraged wide-ranging engineering investigations of heterogeneous, anisotropic media and floor waves of other kinds. Wave propagation in solids is now of substantial value in quite a few functions. The e-book offers a number of the key ends up in this box and translates them from a unified engineering point of view. The conceptual value and relevance for purposes have been the present standards in determining the themes. integrated are physique and floor waves in elastic, viscoelastic, and piezoelectric media and waveguides, with emphasis at the results of inhomogeneity and anisotropy. The ebook differs in lots of points from the opposite monographs facing wave propagation in solids. It specializes in bodily significant theoretical types, a large spectrum of that is lined, and never on mathematical ideas. the various effects, rather these facing waves in composites, are given for the 1st time within the monographical literature. either, specified and approximate methods, are mentioned. whereas the topic is complex, the presentation is at an intermediate point of mathematical complexity, making figuring out easier.

13 Characteristics and Hyperbolicity An equation may often be appreciated without knowing its solution. The concept of characteristics is helpful in this sense. Furthermore, it also suggests a convenient method of solution. To illustrate the concept consider the simple equation .. 2 u-c u,:I::I:= 0 , c = const (1. e; vibrations of an elastic string. It can be rewritten as 8 18 8 18 (8x + ~at)(ax -~at)u = 0 . 77) To integrate (1. 78) Equation (1. 79) It remains to find the functions, O(x, t) and n(x, t).

Similar relations can be derived, of course, for rotations about the axes ';X2 and X3. 6), their structure is identical. We, thus, conclude that two types of bulk waves exist in isotropic elastic media. One of them is associated with the volume changes, whereas the other one with shear motions. The velocity ratio is given by Xo = ca /cf3 = [(>. 7) 48 Chapter II Bulk Waves in Isotropic Media and thus, depends solely on Poisson's ratio. The waves propagating with velocity Coc are called the dilatational or primary waves (P-waves), while those with velocity cf3 are called the shear or secondary waves (S-waves).

We turn to a general case, involving the electric, magnetic, and temperature effects. Thermodynamic analysis provides a convenient means for derivation of the constitutive equations for this case. The system is described by the following variables: i) tensors of strains and stresses, eij and (Tijj ii) electric field, E, and electric displacement, Dj iii) magnetic field, H, and magnetic induction, Bj and iv) temperature, T, and entropy, S. 51) where the first three terms in the right-hand side are, respectively, the elastic, electric and magnetic energies, while the last term is the heat.
