Nonlinear longitudinal bulk strain waves in layered elastic waveguides

We consider long longitudinal bulk strain waves in layered waveguides using Boussinesq-type equations. The equations are developed using lattice models, and this is viewed as an extension of the Fermi-Pasta-Ulam problem. We describe semi-analytical approaches to the solution of scattering problems in delaminated waveguides, and to the construction of the solution of an initial-value problem in the class of periodic functions, motivated by the scattering problems.
