ULTRASONIC WAVE PROPAGATION IN DEFORMED ISOTROPIC ELASTIC MATERIALS

Ultrasonic wave propagation in a deformed solid is studied on the basis of the second-order theory of elasticity. The deformation considered is a kind where one of principal axes of the stress has the same direction at any point and the other two rotate. The fundamental differential equations of the second order which govern ultrasonic wave propagation along the fixed principal direction are reduced to the first order equations by adequate approximation. The effects of nonuniformity of the deformation, especially rotation of principal axes of the stress, on waves are examined.
