Traveling waves in compressible elastic rods
2006 (English)In: Discrete and continuous dynamical systems. Series B, ISSN 1531-3492, Vol. 6, no 1, 151-167 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We determine all weak traveling wave solutions of a model for nonlinear dispersive waves in cylindrical compressible hyperelastic rods. Besides the previously known smooth, peaked, and cusped solutions, the equation is shown to admit compactons, stumpons, and fractal-like waves.
