Sound waves propagate through galactic space, through two-dimensional solids, through biological systems, through normal and dense stars, and through everything that surrounds us; the earth, the sea, and the air. We use sound to locate objects, to identify objects, to understand processes going on in nature, to communicate, and to entertain. The elastic properties of materials determine the velocity of sound in them and tell us about their response to stresses something which is very important when we are trying to construct, manufacture, or create something with any material.
The Handbook of Elastic Properties of Materials will provide these characteristics for almost everything whose elastic properties has ever been measured or deduced in a concise and approachable manner.
Leading experts will explain the significance of the elastic properties as they relate to intrinsic microscopic behavior, to manufacturing, to construction, or to diagnosis. They will discuss the propagation of sound in newly discovered or created materials, and in common materials which are being investigated with a fresh outlook.
The Handbook will provide the reader with the elastic properties of the common and mundane, the novel and unique, the immense and the microscopic, and the exhorbitantly dense and the ephemeral.. You will also find the measurement. And theoretical techniques that have been developed and invented in order to extract these properties from a reluctant nature and recalcitrant systems.
* Solids, liquids and gases covered in one handbook
* Articles by experts describing insights developed over long and Illustrious careers
* Properties of esoteric substances, such as normal and dense stars, superfluid helium three, fullerness, two dimensional solids, extraterrestial substances, gems and planetary atmospheres
* Properties of common materials such as food, wood used for musical instruments, paper, cement, and cork
* Modern dynamic elastic properties measurement techniques

Sound waves propagate through galactic space, two-dimensional solids, biological systems, and through everything that surrounds us: the earth, the sea, and the air. The elastic properties of materials determine their sound velocity and provide us with invaluable information about their response to stresses.
The four volume Handbook of Elastic Properties of Materials, edited by Henry Bass, Moises Levy, and Richard Stern provides these properties in a concise and approachable manner for almost everything whose elastic properties have ever been measured or deduced. Leading experts explain the significance of the elastic properties as they relate to intrinsic microscopic behavior, manufacturing, construction, or diagnosis making the Handbook an invaluable tool for scientists and engineers. They discuss the propagation of sound in newly discovered or created materials, and in common materials that are being investigated with state-of-the-art dynamic measurement techniques.
The Handbook is the first book to provide in one source information on solids, liquids, and gases, along with properties of esoteric substances, such as normal and dense stars, superfluid helium three, fullerenes, two dimensional solids, extraterrestial substances, gems and planetary atmospheres. The first volume of the Handbook is dedicated to the measurement techniques involved with elastic properties. Volume Two, Elastic Properties of Solids, covers a wide range of topics, including theory, elements and compounds, novel and technological materials, and alloys. The third volume is concerned with the elastic properties of solids that are derived from biological and organic materials or are involved with earth and marine sciences. Finally, the fourth volume deals with the elastic properties of liquids and gases.
"All...chapters are of uniform excellance, and supported by extensive references and illustrations. Figures, equations and tables are presented in a thoroughly efficient manner making reference a pleasant task. The handbook is profitable and essential reading for researchers in the science and engineering community concerned with elastic property data."
