The two-dimensional equations of magnetoelastodynamics are considered as a symmetric hyperbolic system of linear first-order partial-differential equations in three independent variables. The characteristic properties of the system are determined and a numerical method for obtaining the solution to mixed initial and boundary-value problems in plane magnetoelastodynamics is presented. Results on the von Neumann necessary condition are presented. Application of the method to a problem which has a known solution provides further numerical evidence of the convergence and stability of the method.
