Numerical Simulation of Wave Propagation in Variable Cross-Section Bars
A model for wave propagation in variable cross-section bars is developed. Then a numerical simulation method based on CSPM is introduced. Furthermore the wave propagations in stepped bars and conical bars are simulated. The simulation results agree well with the analytical solutions, which demonstrate that the model can describe the wave propagation in variable cross-section bars precisely.
