Difference in the Evolution of Longitudinal and Transverse Bell-Shaped Plane Waves Propagating in Nonlinear Elastic Composites
The results on the evolution of nonlinear elastic longitudinal and transverse bell-shaped plane waves are theoretically described, analyzed, and compared. Eighteen options of initial parameters, two composite materials, three wave lengths, three maximum initial amplitudes are numerically analyzed. Three-dimensional graphs of displacement versus traveled distance versus travel time for each option are plotted. The emphasis is on the differences in the evolution of longitudinal and transverse waves.
