Abstract: This talk is devoted to the memory of outstanding scientist and engineer Vadim A. Robsman who died in January 2005. Dr.Robsman was the Honored Builder of Russia. He developed and applied new methods of nondestructive testing of buildings, bridges, power plants and other building units. At the same time, he published works on fundamental problems of acoustics and nonlinear dynamics. In particular, he suggested a new equation of the 4-th order continuing the series of basic equations of nonlinear wave theory (Burgers Eq.: 2-nd order, Korteveg - de Vries Eq.: 3-rd order) and found exact solutions for high-intensity waves in scattering media. © 2006 American Institute of Physics.
