**Theory of Waves in Materials**

by Jeremiah Rushchitsky

**Publisher**: BookBoon 2011**ISBN-13**: 9788776818173**Number of pages**: 270

**Description**:

The book unites the basic theoretical facts from two parts of solid mechanics - mechanics of materials and mechanics of wave processes. It links three important facts from modern mechanics: the basic physical properties of materials; the mathematical models and the corresponding mechanical theories; the characteristic features of propagation of waves.
