Wave Propagation in Two-dimensional Anisotropic Structures

Part of the Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics book series (COMPFLUID)


Layered media are encountered in various natural (soil, wood, tissue, etc.) and artificial (bi-material, fibre reinforced composite, graded materials etc.) structural systems. Composite structural components are made up of a stack of layers (called ply or lamina) to form a laminate. These classes of materials can be both anisotropic and inhomogeneous. Further, these systems are required to resist harsh environments, such as impact load, high temperature load, etc. in their lifetime. Hence, analysis of these layered systems for such loading is important and requires critical attention.
