  • Content Description: It is shown how MOOT (method of optimal truncation, a convergent T-matrix scheme) can be used to calculate elastic wave scattering from compound inclusions, i.e., inclusions which themselves contain flaws - inclusions, voids, or cracks. The general equations are derived, and they are solved for a particular axially-symmetric case - a cracked spherical inclusion immersed in fluid. The crack edge is a circle on the equatorial plane; the crack can extend either inward to the center or outward to the surface of the sphere. Numerical results are given for scattering of acoustic waves from cracked spheres of various materials. Cracked spheres can be fabricated relatively easily, and may be useful in NDE calibrations.
