A new class of nonlinear acoustic phenomena has been observed for acoustic wave interaction with simulated and realistic nonbonded contact interfaces (cracked defects) in solids. "Nonclassical" effects are due to substantially asymmetric stiffness characteristics of the interface for normal stress that results in specific contact acoustic nonlinearity(More)
Acoustic wave interaction with non-bonded contacts was found to be inherently non-linear due to asymmetrical stiffness distribution across the interface. A diode-type non-linearity results in local static elastic fields inside the contact, which are shown to be a source of transient longitudinal and shear DC-acoustic pulses polarized oppositely to a biasing(More)
A new class of nonlinear acoustic phenomena has been observed for acoustic wave interactions with cracked defects in solids. Parametric modulation of crack stiffness results in fractional acoustic subharmonics, wave instability, and generation of chaotic noiselike acoustic excitations. Acoustic-wave impact on a crack is shown to exhibit amplitude hysteresis(More)
The present study is aimed at expanding flexibility and application area of nonlinear acoustic modulation (NAM-) technique by combining the benefits of noncontact ultrasound excitation (remote locating and imaging of defects) with sensitivity of nonlinear methods in a new air-coupled NAM-version. A pair of focused air-coupled transducers was used to(More)
The paper reports on experimental study of elastic nonlinearity of polymers and glass fibre-reinforced (GFR-) composites in a wide range of tensile stress applied (up to a fracture limit). Focused slanted transmission mode (FSTM) of air-coupled ultrasound is adapted for remote generation and detection of flexural waves in the samples of plastics. Local(More)
