Well known results on the propagation and growth of acceleration waves in Cauchy elastic materials are extended to materials which suffer one or two internal constraints. It is proved, under certain restrictions, that acceleration waves will not propagate in a material which has three or more internal constraints. The great simplifications deriving from an assumption of hyperelasticity are indicated. The present results could be extended to materials other than simple elastic.
