Who can tell me what is a good book to learn about wave propagation in thin plates? I would be interested what are the criteria for formation of lamb waves and the different wave modes. The more practical the better.
Re: Book on wave propagation in thin plates ----------- Start Original Message ----------- : Here are some references to try. : "Wave Motion in Elastic Solids" by Karl Graff : "Wave Propagation in Elastic Solids" by Jan Achenbach : "Ultrasonic Waves in Solid Media" by Joseph L. Rose : "Rayleigh and Lamb Waves" by I.A. Viktorov : All are excellent references. You may have trouble finding the last book as it is out of print. : Also, Krautkramer & Krautkramer's book has a section on lamb waves. : -Jim : : -Jim ------------ End Original Message ------------
