Abstract

We present a preliminary study of wave propagation in elastic media which can undergo spinodal decomposition. Spinodal decomposition is a phase separation process which takes place by non-linear diffusion. The induced deformation gradients, however, can remain small and the theory of linear elasticity usually suffices for their determination. In this work, attention is confined to initial stages of spinodal decomposition where the dynamic counterpart of the linear coupled diffusion-deformation theory earlier developed by Aifantis seems to be appropriate in analyzing the relevant phenomena. © 1984.
