Description

The detection of cracks with the aid of ultrasonics is an important nondestructive evaluation technique. The corresponding theoretical problem of the scattering of elastic waves by cracks has attracted considerable attention. Scattering of time harmonic plane wave by an isolated two dimensional Griffith, or an penny-shaped crack in an unbounded elastic medium has been studied extensively. However, studies of the scattering problem by a three dimensional crack other than circular shape have been rather limited. Few studies of scattering from an elliptical crack in an elastic body of infinite extent can be found in the literature. Datta[1] studied the problem using the method of matched asymptotic expansion. Gubernatis et al. [2] and Budiansky and O’Connell [3] have used the elastostatic approximation to determine the scattered field. The backscattered field from an elliptical crack has been obtained by Kino [4] in the low frequency limit by a formula derived from elastodynamic reciprocity theorem. An integro-differential equation technique was employed by Roy [5]–[6] to study the same problem.

Low Frequency Scattering by a Planar Crack

The detection of cracks with the aid of ultrasonics is an important nondestructive evaluation technique.
