Abstract

The general equations for the propagation of longitudinal waves in an infinite cylindrical rod including the effect of a surrounding elastic medium have been derived in order to obtain the relationship between the circular frequency and the wave number. A comparison has then been made with the Smith model in order to investigate the limits of the model and to refine the expressions for the spring and damming constants.

Longitudinal Waves in a Rod in an Elastic Medium

St. Louis, Missouri

The general equations for the propagation of longitudinal waves in an infinite cylindrical rod including the effect of a surrounding elastic medium have been derived in order to obtain the relationship between the circular frequency and the wave number. A comparison has then been made with the Smith model in order to investigate the limits of the model and to refine the expressions for the spring and damming constants.
