Nonlinear Acoustic Waves in Micro-Inhomogeneous Solids.


Nonlinear Acoustic Waves in Micro-Inhomogeneous Solids

Veniamin E. Nazarov and Andrey V. Radostin



251 pages




After reviewing nonlinear acoustics in homogeneous media, Nazarov and Radostin present results of their theoretical and experimental research on nonlinear processes caused by the propagation and interaction of longitudinal elastic waves in micro-inhomogeneous media with a strong acoustic nonlinearity of different types--elastic, hysteretic, and non-elastic. Among the topics are physical models and mechanisms of the structure acoustic nonlinearity of micro-inhomogeneous media with cracks and cavities, wave processes in micro-inhomogeneous solids with hysteretic nonlinearity, wave processes in polycrystalline solids with dissipative and reactive nonlinearity caused by dislocations, experimental studies of nonlinear acoustic phenomena in granular media, and nonlinear phenomena in seismic waves.
