Propagation of two-dimensional transient out-of-plane shear waves in multilayered viscoelastic media is investigated. The multilayered medium consists of N different isotropic, homogeneous and linearly viscoelastic layers with more than one discrete relaxation time. The top surface of the layered medium is subjected to dynamic out-of-plane shear tractions; whereas, the lower surface is free or fixed. A numerical technique is employed to obtain the solution, which combines the Fourier transform with the method of characteristics. The numerical results are displayed in curves denoting the variations of the shear stresses with time at different locations. These curves reveal clearly the scattering effects caused by the reflections and refractions of inclined waves at the boundaries and at the interfaces of the layers. The curves also display the effects of viscous damping in the wave profiles. By suitably adjusting the material constants, the curves for the case of elastic layers are also obtained as a special case. The curves farther show that the numerical technique applied in this study is capable of predicting the sharp variations at the wave fronts.

LONGITUDINAL ELASTIC-WAVE PROPAGATION AND ENERGY FLUX AT A DISCONTINUITY OF 2 DISSIMILAR SEMIINFINITE CIRCULAR RODS
Yıldırım, Raif Orhan (1994-10-01)
Elastic wave propagation through an area discontinuity of two dissimilar, bonded, semi-infinite circular rods is investigated analytically. In particular, the variations of the coefficients of stress reflection and transmission are determined in terms of the nondimensional cross sectional area and mechanical impedance parameters. The coefficients of energy flux reflection and transmission are also included. Then, the case is generalized to include a rigid mass attached at the discontinuity.
Investigation of inviscid shear layer by linear stability theories
Topbaş, Ahmet Emre; Özgen, Serkan; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2018)
ThisIn this thesis, spatial and temporal instabilities of the inviscid shear layer flows are investigated using the linear stability theory. Utilizing the small and wavy disturbances, Rayleigh equation was derived from the Helmholtz vorticity equation. For the hyperbolic-tangent velocity profile, the Rayleigh equation was solved by using space and time amplification approaches by an in-house Fortran code involving RK4 and simplex method algorithm. Eigenvalues of various disturbance frequencies were calculat...
Wave Propagation in Poroelastic Media Saturated by Two Fluids
Tuncay, Kağan (ASME International, 1997-6-1)
<jats:p>A theory of wave propagation in isotropic poroelastic media saturated by two immiscible Newtonian fluids is presented. The macroscopic constitutive relations, and mass and momentum balance equations are obtained by volume averaging the microscale balance and constitutive equations and assuming small deformations. Momentum transfer terms are expressed in terms of intrinsic and relative permeabilities assuming the validity of Darcy’s law. The coefficients of macroscopic constitutive relations are expr...
