Rheological Response and Validity of Viscoelastic Model through Wave Propagation

Kanwaljeet Kaur, Rajneesh Kakar and Kishan Chand Gupta

The effect of non-homogeneity on wave propagation in four parameter viscoelastic model is investigated analytically as well as numerically. The nonhomogeneity parameters in viscoelastic rods are taken as dependent of space coordinates. The consecutive equation of four parameter viscoelastic model is developed and then it is solved with the help of Friedlander series and Eikonal equation of optics. The asymptotic equation of wave front for harmonic waves in non-homogeneous viscoelastic rods are obtained by reducing the linear partial differential equation into ordinary differential equation. The problem is illustrated graphically in detail
