Abstract

The problem of the radial propagation of shear waves in a nonhomogeneous elastic medium with a cylindrical cavity is solved by the theory of propagating surfaces of discontinuity. Thus, numerical integration that is required in using method of characteristics is avoided. An analytical solution, in the form of a Taylor series expanded about the time of arrival of the wavefront, is obtained. Two numerical examples, which are shown to agree with previous results, are also presented. © 1969, Acoustical Society of America. All rights reserved.
