A New Use of the Elastodynamic Reciprocity Theorem Jan D. Achenbach McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Northwestern University Evanston, IL, 60208 Symposium in Honor of Ted Belytschko April 18-20, 2013

Elastodynamic Reciprocity Betti (1872), Rayleigh (1873), Graffi (1947) time-harmonic fields:,, Consider two elastodynamic states Then for a region V with boundary S Linear stress-strain relation: Solids may be: anisotropic inhomogeneous linearly viscoelastic

Lamb’s Problem (1904) Time Harmonic line load radiates: Circular longitudinal wave Circular transverse wave Wedge wave Surface (Rayleigh wave)

Guided Waves

Conclusion For every configuration that supports guided waves: e.g., surface waves (Rayleigh) waves in a layer (Lamb) waves in a film/substrate configuration (Sezawa) and if the free time-harmonic form of such waves is known, then the reciprocity theorem of elastodynamics provides a simple approach to determine the amplitude of guided waves that radiate from time-harmonic external excitation. For pulsed excitations such as laser generated heating, Fourier superposition gives the signal strength of the radiated guided waves.
