Material Multipole Modelling of Defects in Electromagnetically Coupled Elastic Solids
The “New Material” age is shaping today’s epoch at least as much as the stone age and iron age did theirs. A key to the new materials is the increasing ability of researchers to manipulate substances at the microscopic molecular level and therefore, the need for increasingly sophisticated models of the imperfections of materials.
This paper is concerned with the modelling of defects in electromagnetically coupled elastic materials using the concept of material multipoles, in particular of the induced type. The problem of eddy current flaw testing for elastic solids and the problem of the mechanical behaviour of magnetoelastic composites are dealt with in detail.
