Abstract : This report contains a summary of the research performed under the following topics: (1) a theoretical analysis of waves propagating in a bounded, heterogeneous elastic medium, (2) the transient response of an elastic half-space to a spreading surface load, (3) propagation of stress waves in a homogeneous isotropic wedge, (4) seismic wave radiation from sources moving over a finite distance, (5) the dynamic response of a fluid-filled circular cylindrical shell to pressure waves while subjected to a uniform external pressure, and (6) transmission of sounds and pulse waves in large arteries and veins.
