Abstract

Stress wave propagation in a periodically laminated plate subjected to impulsive loads is described by employing a mixture theory of solids in which every constituent has its own motion but is allowed to interact with the other. The results obtained according to this dispersive theory are compared with those based on the complete theory of elasticity and with results furnished by the effective modulus theory. It is shown that for the present situation the mixture theory well predicts the dynamical behaviour in transient problems.
