There exist two features which cause an enhancement of nonlinear phenomena in inhomogeneous media. Firstly, local stress concentration increases the effective nonlinear constant. Secondly, phase synchronism limitation decreases due to the multipulse character of the interaction. The first effect is studied in the paper.
