Nonlinear acoustic wave propagating in one-dimensional layered system

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The propagation of finite-amplitude plane sound in one-dimensional layered media is studied by the extended method of transfer matrix formalism. For the periodic layered system consisting of two alternate types of liquid, the energy distribution and the phase vectors of the interface vibration are computed and analyzed. It is found that in the pass-band, the second harmonic of sound wave can propagate with the characteristic modulation. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
