We study the propagation of two-dimensional finite-amplitude shear waves in a nonlinear pre-strained incompressible solid, and derive several asymptotic amplitude equations in a simple, consistent and rigorous manner. The scalar Zabolotskaya (Z) equation is shown to be the asymptotic limit of the equations of motion for all elastic generalized neo-Hookean solids (with strain energy depending only on the first principal invariant of Cauchy–Green strain). However, we show that the Z equation… 
A hyperbolic framework for shear sound beams in nonlinear solids
A change of variables is proposed to transform the equations into a quasi-linear first-order system of conservation laws and its numerical resolution is tackled by using a path-conservative MUSCL-Osher finite volume scheme, which is well-suited to the computation of shock waves.
Generalization of the Zabolotskaya equation to all incompressible isotropic elastic solids†
It is shown that for a general isotropic incompressible solid, the coupling between anti-plane and in-plane motions cannot be undone and thus it is concluded that linear polarization is impossible for general nonlinear two-dimensional shear waves.
Fully non-linear wave models in fiber-reinforced anisotropic incompressible hyperelastic solids
Abstract Many composite materials, including biological tissues, are modeled as non-linear elastic materials reinforced with elastic fibers. In the current paper, the full set of dynamic equations
A remarkable generalization of the Zabolotskaya equation

Non-linear anti-symmetric shear motion: a comparative study of non-homogeneous and homogeneous plates
In this article, the non-linear anti-symmetric shear motion for some comparative studies between the non-homogeneous and homogeneous plates, having two free surfaces with stress-free, is considered.
Likely oscillatory motions of stochastic hyperelastic solids
Stochastic homogeneous hyperelastic solids are characterized by strain-energy densities where the parameters are random variables defined by probability density functions. These models allow for
Some comparisons between heterogeneous and homogeneous plates for nonlinear symmetric SH waves in terms of heterogeneous and nonlinear effects
In this article, the propagation of nonlinear shear horizontal waves for some comparisons between the heterogeneous and homogeneous plates is considered. It is assumed that one plate is made of up
Radial waves in fiber-reinforced axially symmetric hyperelastic media
Extensions of the model onto the case when fibers have a radial projection, as well as onto a viscoelastic case taking into account dissipative effects, are considered; wave equations governing shear displacements in those cases are derived and analyzed.
Non-linear bright solitary SH waves in a hyperbolically heterogeneous layer

The propagation of nonlinear shear horizontal (SH) waves in an incompressible hyper-elastic plate of uniform thickness is investigated. It is assumed that the plate is made of heterogeneous,


A modified Khokhlov-Zabolotskaya equation governing shear waves in a prestrained hyperelastic solid.
Weakly nonlinear, weakly diffracting, two-dimensional shear waves propagating in a prestrained hyperelastic solid are examined and the shock jump relations and the prediction of shocks having a speed which is identical to the nonlinear wave speed ahead of or behind the shock are predicted.
On the derivation of the Khokhlov-Zabolotskaya-Kuznetsov (KZK) equation and validation of the KZK-approximation for viscous and non-viscous thermo-elastic media
We consider the derivation of the Khokhlov-Zabolotskaya-Kuznetzov (KZK) equation from the nonlinear isentropic Navier-Stokes and Euler systems. The KZK equation is a mathematical model that describes

A point transformation between forms of the generalized Burgers equation (g b e) first given by Cates (1989) is investigated. Applications include generalizations of Scott’s (1981) classification of
Nonlinear reflection of shock shear waves in soft elastic media.
The smooth but non-monotonic transition between these three reflection regimes, from linear Snell-Descartes to perfect grazing case, provides a solution to the acoustical von Neumann paradox for the shear wave equation.

The paper has three parts. In the first part a cubically nonlinear equation is derived for a transverse finite‐amplitude wave in an isotropic solid. The cubic nonlinearity is expressed in terms of

Solitary and compactlike shear waves in the bulk of solids.
It is shown that a model proposed by Rubin, Rosenau, and Gottlieb for dispersion caused by an inherent material characteristic length belongs to the class of simple materials, and this insight is able to fine-tune nonlinear and dispersive effects in the theory of nonlinear elasticity.
