Wave propagation in swollen elastic solids Conference Paper uri icon


  • We study the propagation of waves in homogeneous isotropic elastic solids infused with solids, within the context of the Theory of Mixtures. We show that our theory reduces to that proposed by Biot. We analyze the propagation of transverse plane waves, longitudinal waves and spherical waves in isotropic solids infused with a fluid.
