Elastic Wave Transmission and Reflection in Long Uniform Bars Due to the End Impact of a Rigid Mass
The manner in which the elastic exponential stress wave, generated by the impact of a rigid mass on the end of a long elastic bar, is related to that which would be generated by the impact of an equal elastic mass, is demonstrated. The stress wave systems, generated by the impact of a rigid mass on the end of a bar or bars which possess a rigid mass at the other end, is also investigated, and stress wave reflection is analysed when the distal end of a bar is only partly fixed.
