We used the integral equation formulation of the scattering of elastic waves to generate an approximate solution analogous to the Born approximation in quantum mechanics. This solution is attractive because of the ease with which it may be applied to scatterers of complicated shapes. We investigated the validity of the approximation by comparing it with exact results for spherical scatterers. Our conclusion for voids in elastic media is that the approximation describes well the scattering when… Expand
