  author={Vladimir Maz'ya and Alexander B. Movchan and Michael J. Nieves},
In this paper we consider formal asymptotic algorithms for a class of meso-scale approximations for problems of vibration of elastic membranes, which contain clusters of small inertial inclusions distributed along contours of pre-defined smooth shapes. Effective transmission conditions have been identified for inertial structured interfaces, and approximations to solutions of eigenvalue problems have been derived for domains containing lower-dimensional clusters of inclusions.
