TL;DR: In this paper, the scattering of elastic waves by elastic inclusions surrounded by interface layers is studied by means of the null field approach and the properties of the interface layer enters through the boundary conditions on the inclusion.
Abstract: The scattering of elastic waves by elastic inclusions surrounded by interface layers is a problem of interest for nondestructive evaluation of interfaces in composites. In the present paper the scattering by a single elastic inclusion is studied. The scattering problem is solved by means of the null field approach and the properties of the interface layer enters through the boundary conditions on the inclusion

TL;DR: In this article, a semianalytical finite-element method is adopted to study the guided waves in both infinite- and finite-width elastic plates, where three-noded beam elements in the thickness direction are used in infinite plate model, whereas the cross section of the finite width plate is represented by ninenoded quadrilateral elements.
Abstract: Transient ultrasonic guided waves in anisotropic layered plates with finite and infinite width are presented in this article. A semianalytical finite-element method is adopted to study the guided waves in both infinite- and finite-width elastic plates. Three-noded beam elements in the thickness direction are used in infinite plate model, whereas the cross section of the finite-width plate is represented by nine-noded quadrilateral elements. Propagation in the axial direction is modeled by analytical wave functions. Elastodynamic Green’s functions are derived using modal summation in the frequency–wave number and time–space domains. Results for dispersion and transient analysis of guided waves in infinite nickel plates are presented and compared with those of finite-width plates. Group velocities are calculated and wave arrival times are computed for different plate cross sections. Numerical results show a significant influence of the plate aspect ratio on the dispersion and transient wave response. The co...
TL;DR: In this paper, a hybrid method for analyzing the scattering of time-harmonic plane strain waves by cracks in an infinite laminated composite plate is presented by dividing the domain into two regions: an interior region that consists of cracks and a finite region of the plate around the cracks; and an unbounded exterior region.
Abstract: A hybrid method is presented for analyzing scattering of time-harmonic plane strain waves by cracks in an infinite laminated composite plate. The modeling is achieved by dividing the domain into two regions: an interior region that consists of the cracks and a finite region of the plate around the cracks; and an unbounded exterior region. The hybrid method combines a finite element formulation in the interior region with a wave-function expansion representation in the exterior region. The method is illustrated through solving the problem of scattering by a symmetric normal-edge crack. Numerical results for the reflection coefficients are presented for an isotropic plate, a homogeneous fiber-reinforced plate, and a laminated fiber-reinforced plate. The validity and accuracy of the results are checked by satisfaction of the reciprocity relations and the principle of energy conservation. The technique presented can be used to characterize cracks in laminated composite plates.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors studied the scattering of elastic waves in a layered half-space and in layered fiber-reiforced composite plates by interface cracks using a boundary integral formulation.
Abstract: Ultrasonic waves provide an efficient means of characterizing defects in structures. For this purpose it is necessary to analyze scattering by such defects. However, scattering by crack-like defects in a plate-like structure is a complicated phenomenon and the problem is made more difficult if it is a composite plate. In recent years considerable progress has been made toward understanding wave propagation in anisotropic composite plates [1–5], but not much work has been done on the scattering by cracks in a composite plate. Recently Karim and Kundu  and Karim et al.  studied scattering of elastic waves in a layered half-space and in layered fiber-reiforced composite plates by interface cracks using a boundary integral formulation. They considered antiplane motions. Although this method can be extended to plane strain motion the computional effort is considerably amplified if one considers a plate geometry. Besides, the method used by these authors is limited to planar defects. For arbitrarily shaped scatterers Sanchez-Sesma  reviewed various applicable methods. Most of these numerical methods require considerable computational effort to evaluate the response. Their applicability to layered and anisotropic medium is also limited.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors focus on variational and related methods for the overall properties of composites, such as fiber-reinforced composites or polycrystals, whose properties vary in a complicated fashion from point to point over a small, microscopic length scale, while they appear on average to be uniform.
Abstract: Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on variational and related methods for the overall properties of composites. A wide range of phenomena that are observable macroscopically are governed by partial differential equations that are linear and self-adjoint. This chapter is concerned with such phenomena for materials, such as fiber-reinforced composites or polycrystals, whose properties vary in a complicated fashion from point to point over a small, “microscopic” length scale, while they appear “on average” (that is, relative to the larger, macroscopic scale) to be uniform. This chapter treats the elastic behavior of composites, and emphasizes that a number of other properties (conductivity, viscosity of a suspension, etc.) are described by the same equations. Extensions to viscoelastic and thermoelastic behavior are presented, for both of which the variational characterization given is believed to be new. Problems, such as the resistance to flow of viscous fluid through a fixed bed of particles are mentioned, and a model problem that involves diffusion is presented in some detail. This displays the same difficulty in relation to divergence of an integral and is one problem of this type that has so far been approached variationally. Methods related to the Hashin–Shtrikman variational principle are also described in the chapter.

Abstract: Ultrasonic guided wave inspection is expanding rapidly to many different areas of manufacturing and in-service inspection. The purpose of this paper is to provide a vision of ultrasonic guided wave inspection potential aswe move forward into the new millennium. An increased understanding of the basic physics and wave mechanics associated with guided wave inspection has led to an increase in practical nondestructive evaluation and inspection problems. Some fundamental concepts and a number of different applications that are currently being considered will be presented in the paper along with a brief description of the sensor and software technology that will make ultrasonic guided wave inspection commonplace in the next century.

TL;DR: In this paper, exact solutions for three-dimensional, anisotropic, linearly magneto-electroelastic, simply-supported, and multilayered rectangular plates under static loadings are derived.
Abstract: Exact solutions are derived for three-dimensional, anisotropic, linearly magneto-electroelastic, simply-supported, and multilayered rectangular plates under static loadings. While the homogeneous solutions are obtained in terms of a new and simple formalism that resemble the Stroh formalism, solutions for multilayered plates are expressed in terms of the propagator matrix. The present solutions include all the previous solutions, such as piezoelectric, piezomagnetic, purely elastic solutions, as special cases, and can therefore serve as benchmarks to check various thick plate theories and numerical methods used for the modeling of layered composite structures. Typical numerical examples are presented and discussed for layered piezoelectric/piezomagnetic plates under surface and internal loads.
