Abstract

Scattering of elastic waves by a partially debonded elliptical inclusion is studied by using the boundary element method. We apply the results of the single scattering problem to the propagation of elastic waves in a composite material containing a dilute concentration of elliptical inclusions. Numerical calculations are carried out for a moderately wide range of frequencies, and the effects of microstructure and constituent properties on the scattering cross sections, the phase velocities and attenuations of coherent waves and the effective elastic moduli for a dilute composite material are shown graphically.
