REFLECTION AND TRANSMISSION OF A PULSE AT A NOTCH-DISCONTINUITY IN A ROD. Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • When a longitudinal pulse is incident at a notch-discontinuity in a rod, it results in a transmitted and a reflected longitudinal pulse. These pulses have been experimentally recorded for three values of notch-to-rod diameter ratios. The experimental results are compared with the predictions of elementary theory, and the comparison is found to be reasonably good.
