We propose a class of cylindrical cloaks for elastic waves which are deduced from geometric transform. In particular we implement a radially symmetric linear geometric transform which depends upon a parameter and depending upon the value of such parameter, the transform is applied to the design of neutral (invisibility) cloaks and to obtain mirage effects. Interestingly, the cloaking device has been designed for fully-coupled in-plane shear and pressure waves and, moreover, the chosen reparameterization is such that the elasticity equations maintain their initial form under the transformation, which is generally untrue in the elasticity case.
