Finite-Amplitude Inhomogeneous Plane Waves of Exponential Type in Incompressible Elastic Materials
It is proved that elliptically polarized finite-amplitude inhomogeneous plane waves may not propagate in an elastic material subject to the constraint of incompressibility. The waves considered are harmonic in time and exponentially attenuated in a direction distinct from the direction of propagation. The result holds whether the material is stress-free or homogeneously deformed.
