Acoustic Metamaterials: Negative Refraction, Imaging, by Richard V. Craster,Sébastien Guenneau

By Richard V. Craster,Sébastien Guenneau

concerning the publication: This publication is the 1st finished evaluation on acoustic metamaterials; novel fabrics that could control sound waves in unbelievable methods, which come with collimation, focusing, cloaking, sonic screening and notable transmission. It covers either experimental and theoretical features of acoustic and elastic waves propagating in dependent composites, with a spotlight on potent homes linked to damaging refraction, lensing and cloaking. such a lot comparable books within the box tackle electromagnetic metamaterials and concentrate on numerical equipment, and little (or no) experimental part. each one bankruptcy can be authored by means of an said professional, among the themes lined could be experimental effects on non-destructive imaging, cloaking by way of floor water waves, flexural waves in skinny plates. functions in clinical ultrasound imaging and modeling of metamaterials can be emphasised too. The publication can function a reference for researchers who desire to construct a great origin of wave propagation during this type of novel materials.
