The motion of a rigid spherical inclusion in an elastic medium under the action of plane waves
Two problems on the motion of a rigid spherical inclusion in an elastic medium under the action of a nonstationary, longitudinal, plane, compressional wave and a harmonic shear wave are considered. Using the method of vector eigenfunctions and the integral Laplace transform with respect to time their precise solutions are constructed. Numerical results are given which illustrate the dependence of characteristics of motion of the inclusion on parameters of the falling wave.
