The reciprocity theorem has been used for over 100 years to establish interesting and useful relationships and to formulate problems. Internationally distinguished for his contributions to mechanics, Jan Achenbach presents a novel method of solving wave fields. The material presented here is relevant to applications in engineering and applied physics such as ultrasonics for medical imaging and non-destructive evaluation, acoustic microscopy, seismology, exploratory geophysics, and structural acoustics.Read more
- Sheds new light on the utility of reciprocity relations for dynamic fields in an elastic body
- Presents new method to solve for wave fields generated by dynamic loading conditions
- Systematically discusses applications, old and new, for reciprocity in acoustics, in one-dimensional elastodynamics, and in two- and three-dimensional elastodynamics
