Surface and plate waves in biaxially-stressed elastic media
- 35 Downloads
The propagation of waves of small amplitude in an incompressible elastic medium subjected to a large homogeneous equibiaxial stress is investigated. The dispersion equation for surface waves on a semi-infinite medium is obtained explicitly, and the dispersion equation for waves in a slab of finite depth. In the latter case, approximate values, valid for waves whose lengths are much greater than the slab thickness, are determined for the phase-velocities of the different modes.
