Nonlinear waves in heterogeneous elastic rods via homogenization

Quezada de Luna, M. and Đuričković, B. and Goriely, A. (2011) Nonlinear waves in heterogeneous elastic rods via homogenization. International Journal of Nonlinear Mechanics . (Submitted)



We consider the propagation of a planar loop on a heterogeneous elastic rod with a periodic microstructure consisting of two alternating homogeneous regions with different material properties. The analysis is carried out using a second-order homogenization theory based on a multiple scale asymptotic expansion.
