  • Elastic interface acoustic waves in twinned crystals 

    Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2003)
    A new type of interface acoustic waves (IAW) is presented, for single-crystal orthotropic twins bonded symmetrically along a plane containing only one common crystallographic axis. The effective boundary conditions show ...
  • Gent models for the inflation of spherical balloons 

    Mangan, Robert; Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2015)
    We revisit an iconic deformation of non-linear elasticity: the inflation of a rubber spherical thin shell. We use the 3-parameter Mooney and Gent-Gent (GG) phenomenological models to explain the stretch-strain curve of a ...
  • Initial stress symmetry and its applications in elasticity 

    Gower, Artur Lewis; Destrade, Michel (The Royal Society, 2015-10-28)
    An initial stress within a solid can arise to support external loads or from processes such as thermal expansion in inert matter or growth and remodelling in living materials. For this reason, it is useful to develop a ...
  • Interface waves in pre-stressed incompressible solids 

    Destrade, Michel (Springer, 2007)
    We study incremental wave propagation for what is seemingly the simplest boundary value problem, namely that constitued by the plane interface of a semi-infinite solid. With a view to model loaded elastomers and soft ...
  • A note about waves in dissipative and dispersive solids 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2008)
    We study shear waves propagating in a special viscoelastic model proposed first by Fosdick and Yu in 1996. We deduce an asymptotic approximation which reduces the full balance equations to a system of evolution equations ...
  • Ray W Ogden: An Appreciation 

    Destrade, Michel; Dorfmann, Luis (SAGE Publications, 2015-07)
    This special issue of Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids is dedicated to Professor Ray Ogden FRS on the occasion of his 70th birthday. It is a companion volume to another special issue edited by our colleagues ...
  • Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade 

    Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (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 ...
