Description

At high frequencies, the geometrical theory of diffraction provides useful and relatively simple approximations to diffracted fields. In this paper the theory is applied to the diffraction of time-harmonic longitudinal waves by a penny-shaped crack in an elastic solid.

Application of Geometrical Diffraction Theory to Scattering by Cracks

At high frequencies, the geometrical theory of diffraction provides useful and relatively simple approximations to diffracted fields. In this paper the theory is applied to the diffraction of time-harmonic longitudinal waves by a penny-shaped crack in an elastic solid.
