Title: Longitudinal Wave Simulation
Post by: vincentryan on February 11, 2009, 10:51:30 pm
Hi
 I am working to design a efficient aircraft nose cone. for my work the longitudinal wave simulator is necessary to find the some physical properties of the fluid.

I want to design a simulator for Longitudinal Wave as shown in the following page.

http://www.kettering.edu/~drussell/Demos/waves/wavemotion.html


In the Longitudinal Wave animation, the Object is moving in front and back and the fluid is at rest.
In case the object is at rest and the fluid is moving, what will be the result?.
Both the Object and fluid are in motion in opposite direction with same speed, what will be the result?
Here i want to use the different object.


Please Help Me

1. You are welcomed to check out Transverse Wave and Longitudinal Wave (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=14.0)
2. What really important is relative motion.

For object moving in a fluid:
 if you change your system to moving with object , then the object is at rest and the fluid is moving.

Please check out Relative Motion (frame of reference) (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=140.0)
