INTRODUCTION
The mutual interactions between an externally applied magnetic field and the elastic deformation in
the solid body, gi
ve rise to the coupled field of
magneto

elasticity. Since electric currents also give
rise to magnetic field and vice

versa, the combined effect is also s
o
metimes known as magneto

electro

elasticity.
It is evident that since many component fields are interacting, a large number of
unknowns are involved and the solution of even the most elementary problems becomes difficult and
cumbersome. We therefore almost always have to take certain assumptions to
solve the problems.
The interaction of elastic and electromagnetic fields has numerous applications in various field of
science such as detection of mechanical explosions in the interior of the earth.
In spite
of the fact that
Maxwell equations governing e
lectro

magnetic field have been known for long time, the
interest
in
the coupled field is
helpful
in the field such as geophysics, optics,
acoustics
, damping of
acoustic
waves in magnetic fields, geomagnetics and oil prospecting etc.
Much literature is av
ailable on torsional surface wave propagation in homogeneous elastic and visc
o
elastic media. Pal (2000) presented a note on torsional body forces in a viscoelastic half space. Dey
et
al.
(1996, 2000, 2002, 2003) investigated the effect of torsional surface
waves in non

homogeneous
anisotropic medium, torsional surface waves in an elastic layer with void pores, torsional surface
waves in an elastic layer with void pores over an elastic half space with void pores and effect of grav
i
ty and initial stress on to
rsional surface waves in dry sandy medium.
Kaliski (

d
y
namic equations of motion coupled with the field of temperatures and resolving functions for elastic
and inelastic bodies in a magnetic field, Narain

In this study an attempt has been made to investigate the torsional wave propagation in non

homogeneous viscoelastic cylindrically aeolotropic material permeated by
an
electro

magneto field
.
The graphs have been plotted showing the effect of variation of elastic constants and the presence of
electro

magneto field
. It is observed that the torsional elastic waves in a viscoelastic solid body pro
p
agating under the influence of a superimposed
el
ectro

can be different significantly
from that of those propagating in the absence of
an
electro

The Maxwell equations of the electromagnetic field in a region with no

Let us consider a semi

infinite hollow cylindrical tube of radii
α
and
β
. Let the elastic properties of
the shell are symmetrical about z

axis, and the tube is placed in an axial magnetic field surrounded by
vacuum. Since, we are investigating the torsional waves in an aeolotropic
cylin
d

tube therefore
the displacement ve

NUMERICAL RESULTS
The effect of
non

homogeneity
, electric field and magnetic field
on torsional waves in an aeolotropic
material made of viscoelastic solids has been studied. The numerical computation of phase velocity
has been made for homogeneous and non

homogeneous pipe. The graphs ar
e plotted for the two
cases (l=0 and l=2). Different values of
α/λ (diameter/wavelength) for homogeneous in the pre
s
ence of
electro

magneto
field and
non

homogeneous
case in the absence of
electro

magneto field
are
calculated from Eq. (49) and Eq. (65) wi
th the help of MATLAB. The variations elastic constants and
presence of
electro

magneto field
in two curves have been obtained by choosing the following p
a
rameters for homogeneous and non

homogeneous aeolotropic pipe
(table 1)
.
The curves obtained in
fig.
1 clearly show that the phase velocity for homogeneous as well as non

homogeneous case d
e
creases inside the aeolotropic tube. The presence of
electro

magneto field
also reduces the speed of
torsional
waves in viscoelastic solids. These curves justify the r
esults obtained in Eq. (50) and Eq.
(52) mathematically
given by
Narain (
1978)
and
Chandrasekharaiahi (
1972)

Fig
ure 1:
Torsional wave dispersion curves
We see that for homogeneous case when
electro

magneto field
is present and for non

homogeneous
case when
electro

magneto field
is not present the variation i.e. shape of the curves is same. For non

homogeneous case, the elastic constants and the density of the tube are varying as the square of the
radius vector.

CONCLUSIONS
The above problem deals with the interaction of
elastic and electromagnetic fields in a viscoelastic
media. This study is useful for detections of mechanical explosions inside the earth. In this study an
attempt has been made to investigate the torsional wave propagation in non

homogeneous viscoela
s
tic
cylindrically aeolotropic material permeated by a
electric and
magnetic field. It has been observed
that the phase velocity decreases as the magnetic field
and
electric
field
increases.
