Research contributions over the past 50 years on the theory and analysis of elastodynamics are reviewed in this paper. Major topics reviewed are: general theories, steady-state waves in waveguides, transient waves in layered media, diffraction and scattering, and one and two-dimensional theories of elastic bodies. A brief discussion on the direct and inverse problems of elastic waves completes this review.
