Abstract:

A general study is given of plane and cylindrical wave propagation of combined stresses in an elastic-plastic medium. The coefficients of the governing differential equations, when written in matrix notation, are symmetric matrices and can be divided into sub-matrices each of which has a special form. The relations between the stresses on both sides of an elastic-plastic boundary are derived. Also presented are the restrictions on the speed of an elastic- plastic boundary.
