Abstract : The influence of plastic deformation on the propagation of elastic waves has been studied. Particular attention has been paid to attenuation as a function of plastic deformation, crystal type and orientation, and rate of deformation. Several interesting phenomena associated with cyclic loading were discovered which exist even for small elastic deformation. (Author)
