A problem of the dynamic behavior of an elastic layer coupled to one or two thick elastic solids is considered. All the materials may possess a general anisotropy and the layer is assumed to be thin enough with respect to the characteristic wavelength. Introducing the asymptotic power series with respect to the thickness-over-wavelength ratio for the main(More)
We develop a theory of elastic waves in oriented monodomain nematic elastomers. The effect of soft elasticity, combined with the Leslie-Ericksen version of dissipation function, results in an unusual dispersion and anomalous anisotropy of shear acoustic waves. A characteristic time scale of nematic rotation determines the crossover frequency, below which(More)
The near field underneath the ultrasonic probe fluid coupled to an isotropic solid is approximated in the frequency domain by a closed form asymptotic solution. The approximation is based on the problem decomposition and uses the stationary phase method evaluating the response to an equivalent surface source. This results in a sum of contributions, each(More)
