Abstract: The book presents a comprehensive study of elastic wave propagation in solids. Topics covered range from the theory of waves and vibrations in strings to the three-dimensional theory of waves in thick plates. The subject is covered in the following chapters: (1) waves and vibrations in strings, (2) longitudinal waves in thin rods, (3) flexural waves in thin rods, (4) waves in membranes, thin plates and shells, (5) waves in infinite media, (6) waves in semi-infinite media, (7) scattering and diffraction of elastic waves, and (8) wave propagation in plates and rods. Appendices contain introductory information on elasticity, transforms and experimental techniques. /TRRL/ more
