Acoustic wave propagation in a composite of water with embedded double-layered silicone resin/silver rods is considered. Approximate values of effective dynamical constitutive parameters are obtained. Frequency ranges of simultaneous negative constitutive parameters are found. Localized surface states on the interface between metamaterial and “normal” material are found. The Doppler effect in metamaterial is considered. The presence of anomalous modes is shown.
