Acoustics of Layered Media I: Plane and Quasi-Plane Waves by Professor Leonid M. Brekhovskikh, Dr. Oleg A. Godin (auth.)

By Professor Leonid M. Brekhovskikh, Dr. Oleg A. Godin (auth.)

This monograph is dedicated to the systematic presentation of the speculation of sound­ wave propagation in layered constructions. those constructions should be man-made, reminiscent of ultrasonic filters, lenses, surface-wave hold up traces, or ordinary media, corresponding to the sea and the ambience, with their marked horizontal stratification. A comparable challenge is the propagation of elastic (seismic) waves within the earth's crust those issues were taken care of fairly thoroughly within the e-book by means of L. M. Brek­ hovskikh, Waves in Layered Media, the English model of the second one variation of which used to be released through educational Press in 1980. because of growth in experimental and machine know-how it has turn into attainable to research the effect of things corresponding to medium movement and density stratification upon the propagation of sound waves. a lot realization has been paid to propagation idea in near-stratified media, Le. , media with small deviations from strict stratification. fascinating effects have additionally been received within the fields of acoustics which were formerly thought of to be "completely" constructed. For those purposes, and likewise end result of the influx of researchers from the similar fields of physics and arithmetic, the circle of folks and learn teams engaged within the examine of sound propagation has relatively improved. hence, the looks of a brand new precis evaluate of the sector of acoustics of layered media has turn into hugely fascinating. for the reason that Waves in Layered Media turned relatively well known, we've attempted to preserve its confident good points and basic structure.
