Energy Exchange Between Nonlinear Waves in Elastic Waveguides and External Media

Part of the Research Reports in Physics book series (RESREPORTS)


The initial-boundary value problem of the propagation of nonlinear longitudinal elastic waves in an initially strained rod is considered. The rod is assumed to interact with the surrounding elastic and viscous or active external medium. The analytical solutions are derived and briefly discussed.
