Modified null field method in a problem of scattering of SH-waves by a partially debonded elastic inclusion with a piecewise smooth contour

  • V. V. Matus

For problems of antiplane shear, we propose a technique for the determination of spectral characteristics of SH-waves scattered by an elastic inclusion of piecewise smooth shape with a crack on the interface of media. The technique is based on using the null field method.
