The propagation of pressure waves in the lung has been investigated by many authors concerned with respiratory physiology, ultrasound medical techniques or thoracic impact injuries. In most of the theoretical studies, the lung has been modeled as an isotropic and homogeneous medium, and by using Hooke's constitutive law (see e.g. Ganesan et al. Respir. Physiol. 110 (1997) 19; Jahed et al. J. Appl. Physiol. 66 (1989) 2675; Grimal et al. C.R. Acad. Sci., Paris 329 (IIb) (2001) 655-662), or more… CONTINUE READING
