The equation of motion of a stress wave in an elastic medium. Consider an element of an elastic medium, as shown below, with all the possible stresses on each of its six faces. x
The equation of motion can be found through a summation of the forces along all three axes, and using Newton’s second law ( F = ma ), ( )( )( ) 2 2 Consider the displacement u in the x-direction, Simplifying, and expanding to all three axes, ° ± ° ± ² ³ ° ± ² ³ ² ³ + - + + - + + - ´ µ · ´ µ ´ µ · · ¸ ¹ ´ µ ¸ ¹ º » º » ¸ ¹ º » = yx zx x x x zx zx yx yx dx dydz dz dxdy dy dxdz x z y u dx dy dz t τ τ σ σ σ τ τ τ τ σ ρ τ σ τ + y x x 2 2 2 2 2 2 + = + + = + + = x zx xy y zy yz xz z u y z t v x y z t w x y z t ρ τ σ τ ρ τ τ σ τ σ ρ
