Solitary SH waves in two-layered traction-free plates
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 336 (2008) no. 1-2, pp. 102-107.

A solitary wave, resembling a soliton wave, is observed when analyzing the linear problem of polarized shear (SH) surface acoustic waves propagating in elastic orthotropic two-layered traction-free plates. The analysis is performed by applying a special complex formalism and the Modified Transfer Matrix (MTM) method. Conditions for the existence of solitary SH waves are obtained. Analytical expressions for the phase speed of the solitary wave are derived.

Une onde isolée ressemblant à un soliton est décrite mathématiquement en analysant les problèmes linéaires pour des ondes de cisaillement de surface se propageant dans les plaques élastiques, anisotropes et stratifiées. Le modèle mathématique est basé sur un formalisme particulier dans un espace complexe et sur la méthode de la matrice modifiée de transfert (MTM). Les conditions d'existence des ondes isolées sont obtenues. La vitesse de phase de ces ondes est décrite par des solutions analytiques.
