Application of Multiple Scattering Theory to Sub-Surface Defects

  • E. Domany
  • O. Entin-Wohlman


A recently developed multiple scattering formalism is applied to treat scattering of elastic waves by subsurface defects. In particular, the problem of a spherical cavity near a stress free surface is treated.
