APSC 776 - Acoustic Wave Propagation in Solids


Spring (3) Prerequisite(s): APSC 722 .

Wave propagation in solids with emphasis on the evaluation of materials and defects. Linear and non-linear wave propagation, mode analysis and mixing, reflection and refraction at interfaces, and wave scattering from defects in isotropic and anisotropic media will be discussed, along with the relationship between wave behavior and the reconstruction of material constitutive equations. The course also will describe the practical aspects of the generation and detection of acoustic waves for non-destructive evaluation of materials.
