Description

The primary objective of this book is to give the reader a basic understanding of waves and their propagation in a linear elastic continuum. The studies of elastodynamic theory and its application to fundamental value problems should prepare the reader to tackle many physical problems of general interest in engineering and geophysics, and of particular interest in mechanics and seismology.

Reviews

@qu:...it is a very welcome addition to the literature. It is well written, provides a large amount of references and presents a systematic account of the subject of elastic waves. It is a valuable book for someone considering learning the subject and can be warmly recommended... a worthwhile publication. @source:Journal of Applied Mechanics @qu:...this book will be of great value as a standard reference work and it should be in all libraries where geophysical research is carried out. @source:Search @qu:This is a fine text and a valuable reference book... @source:Shock and Vibration Digest
