Rayleigh and Lamb Waves

I have just started to look into this subject area which i am completely unfamiliar with. I have been told to get myself a copy of 'Rayleigh and Lamb Waves: Physical Theory and Applications' by I.A. Viktorov. Therein lies my problem as it seems to be one of the rarest books out there.

Could anybody suggest where i may be able to purchase of borrow this book?

Also, are there other books and/or papers that may help as an introduction to the maths involved?

Thanks

Dr.Victorov's book is out of print for years.You might try Amazon and put a request.Books appear at times from various sellers.In case you want a specific section I will be delighted to copied foy you and pdf it for you.Did you also try Prof. Joe Rose's new book on Lamb Waves and more ? Good luck to you. Sotirios

Re: Rayleigh and Lamb Waves
Joseph L. Rose's book "Ultrasonic waves in solid media" covers surface and guided waves nicely and with some useful practical considerations. The maths hasn't changed since Viktorov's time though.

  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
