Abstract:

Some special types of finite amplitude wave motions are considered, for which kinematical non-linearities do not arise in the equations of motion of an elastic solid. Consequently, only constitutive non-linearities occur and, for special classes of materials, solutions may be read off from corresponding solutions in the linear theory. These include SH-waves and Love waves in layered or inhomogeneous media. Finite amplitude transverse circularly-polarized harmonic progressive waves are shown to propagate in any compressible or incompressible isotropic elastic material. Some effects of homogeneous pre-stress are also investigated. Author
