Propagation of two-dimensional transient waves in viscoelastic cylindrical layered media is investigated. The cylindrical multilayered medium consists of N different isotropic, homogeneous and linearly viscoelastic layers with two discrete relaxation times. A numerical technique which combines the complex Fourier series with the method of characteristics is employed to obtain the solutions. The numerical results are displayed in curves denoting the variations of the stress and displacement components with time at different locations. These curves reveal clearly the scattering effects caused by the reflections and refractions of waves at the boundaries and at the interfaces of the layers, and the effects of viscous damping in the wave profiles. The curves further show that the numerical technique applied is capable of predicting the sharp variations in the field variables in the neighbourhood of the wave fronts. By suitably adjusting the material constants, the results for the special cases of elastic layers and viscoelastic layers with one relaxation time (standard linear solid) are also obtained. Furthermore, solutions for some special cases are compared with the available solutions in the literature and a good agreement is found. (C) 2002 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.

Propagation of transient out-of-plane shear waves in viscoelastic layered media
Abu-Alshaikh, I; Turhan, D; Mengi, Y (2001-12-01)
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 meth...
TRANSIENT WAVE-PROPAGATION IN LAYERED MEDIA CONDUCTING HEAT
TURHAN, D; CELEP, Z; ZAINEDDEN, IK (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-22)
Transient wave propagation in thermoelastic layered composites consisting of alternating isotropic, homogeneous and linearly elastic high-strength reinforcing and low-strength matrix layers is investigated. The layers of the composite medium can be plane, cylindrical or spherical. The inner surfaces of the composite bodies are subjected to uniform time dependent dynamic inputs. A common formulation is employed for the three types of layered media. The generalized theory of thermoelasticity is used, with the...
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.

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...
