Quarter Offered

Spring : TTH 3:30-4:50 ; Balogun


Graduate Standing, Senior undergraduate or permission of instructor.


This course is designed to provide a theoretical background on the propagation of elastic stress waves in solids with periodic variation in geometry or elastic properties, a review of experimental techniques for actuation and detection of elastic waves, and an overview of state-of-the art applications of wave propagation in linear and nonlinear periodic media.
