    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite differences; stability; high order accuracy; elastic wave equation; acoustic wave equation; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Abstract : The elastic wave equation describes the propagation of elastic disturbances produced by seismic events in the Earth or vibrations in plates and beams. The acoustic wave equation governs the propagation of sound. READ MORE

  2. 2. Elastic Wave Scattering by Closed Cracks and Thin Flaws - Multiple Scattering and Resonances

    Author : Arne S. Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : SH-wave; evaluation of materials; direct integral equation; singularity expansion; ultrasonic testing;

    Abstract : In this thesis we study elastic wave scattering by thin flaws and closed cracks, which finds applications in ultrasonic testing and evaluation of materials. First we consider the scattering of an SH-wave by a thin finite elastic layer between two elastic half-spaces. READ MORE

    Abstract : This thesis considers wave propagation problems solved using finite element methods where a boundary or interface of the domain is not aligned with the computational mesh. Such methods are usually referred to as cut or immersed methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Elastic Wave Propagation in Anisotropic Media. Application to Ultrasonic NDT

    Author : A. Jonas Niklasson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : layered media; cylinders; cracks; integral equations; scattering; nondestructive testing; elastic waves; ultrasonics; transducers; anisotropy;

    Abstract : The subject of this thesis is elastic wave propagation in anisotropic materials with application to ultrasonic nondestructive testing (NDT). The first part of the thesis is concerned with modeling of ultrasonic transducers and wave propagation in anisotropic materials in general. First, a scalar 2-D case is considered. READ MORE
