concerning the publication: This booklet is the 1st accomplished assessment on acoustic metamaterials; novel fabrics that could manage sound waves in fantastic methods, which come with collimation, focusing, cloaking, sonic screening and remarkable transmission. It covers either experimental and theoretical features of acoustic and elastic waves propagating in based composites, with a spotlight on potent homes linked to damaging refraction, lensing and cloaking. so much comparable books within the box tackle electromagnetic metamaterials and concentrate on numerical tools, and little (or no) experimental part. every one bankruptcy might be authored by way of an stated specialist, among the subjects lined may be experimental effects on non-destructive imaging, cloaking via floor water waves, flexural waves in skinny plates. purposes in clinical ultrasound imaging and modeling of metamaterials might be emphasised too. The booklet can function a reference for researchers who desire to construct an outstanding starting place of wave propagation during this type of novel materials.
