Wave Propagation in Layered Anisotropic Media: with Application to Composites

Front Cover
Elsevier, Sep 27, 1995 - Technology & Engineering - 331 pages
0 Reviews
Recent advances in the study of the dynamic behavior of layered materials in general, and laminated fibrous composites in particular, are presented in this book. The need to understand the microstructural behavior of such classes of materials has brought a new challenge to existing analytical tools. This book explores the fundamental question of how mechanical waves propagate and interact with layered anisotropic media. The chapters are organized in a logical sequence depending upon the complexity of the physical model and its mathematical treatment.
