conference paper description
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.
