Abstract:

The book considers the propagation of shock and continuous waves in solid plastic media, wave refraction on media interfaces, and also interaction with the elements of structures. The problem of considering viscous properties of media when solving certain wave problems is considered. The results are applied also to waves in rods. Specific attention is given to the presentation of laboratory findings on the dynamic properties of soils and on the regularities of the propagation of pressure waves in soils. Information from the general theory of shock waves, which is necessary for understanding the basic material, is presented. Author
