A wave near the edge of a circular disk
(2008)It is shown that in the LoveKirchhoff plate theory, an edge wave can travel in a circular thin disk made of an isotropic elastic material. This disk edge wave turns out to be faster than the classic flexural acoustic wave ... 
Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade
(World Scientific, 2006)We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ... 
Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves
(American Physical Society, 20070417)Weierstrass's theory is a standard qualitative tool for single degree of freedom equations, used in classical mechanics and in many textbooks. In this Brief Report we show how a simple generalization of this tool makes it ...
