Wave-propagation in uniaxially-stressed elastic media
- 31 Downloads
The propagation of waves of small amplitude in an elastic medium, with a particular form of strain-energy function, and subjected to a large homogeneous uniaxial stress, is considered in detail. The main characteristics, including speed and polarisation, of these waves in an unbounded medium are calculated numerically, and the existence and general properties of Rayleigh waves on the surface of a semi-infinite medium are investigated.
