This book systematically discusses the modern theory of propagation and interaction of elastic waves in solids with microstructure. Mathematical models of solids taking into account microstructure, geometrical and physical nonlinearity, damage media, interaction of deformation and magnetic field are obtained. Different wave effects characteristic of solids with microstructure are studied. The opportunity to use these effects in problems of ultrasonic testing of materials and devices of constructions is considered. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
