Effective dynamic properties of a row of elastic inclusions: the case of scalar shear waves. (English) Zbl 1374.74106
Summary: We present the homogenization of a periodic array of elastic inclusions embedded in an elastic matrix. We consider shear elastic waves with a typical wavelength \(1/k\) much larger than the array spacing \(h\) and thickness \(e\). Owing to the small parameter \(\eta=kh\), with \(e/h=O(1)\), a matched asymptotic expansion technique is applied to the wave equation in the time domain. The homogenized problem involves an equivalent interface associated to jump conditions of the Ventcels type. Up to the accuracy of the model in \(O(\eta^{2})\), different jump conditions are possible, which correspond to enlarged versions of the interface; these jump conditions are parametrized by the thickness \(a\) of the homogenized interface. We inspect the influence of \(a\) (i) on the equation of energy conservation in the homogenized problem and (ii) on the error of the model for a simple scattering problem. We show that restoring the thickness of the real array, \(a=e\), is the optimal configuration regarding both aspects.
