    • Nonlinear transverse waves in deformed dispersive solids 

      Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2008)
      We present a phenomenological approach to dispersion in nonlinear elasticity. A simple, thermomechanically sound, constitutive model is proposed to describe the (non-dissipative) properties of a hyperelastic dispersive ...
    • Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves 

      Destrade, Michel (American Physical Society, 2007-04-17)
      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 ...
