Thus, the higher velocity consistently found in trees compared with logs during previous research is coherent, because the velocity is stiffness dependent and the dilatational wave velocities of trees are greater than the one-dimensional wave velocity of logs (Wang 2013).
The volume dilatation e satisfies a wave equation known as the dilatational wave equation [6, see p.
2005) developed two models (multivariate regression model and dilatational wave model) for the species evaluated in those trials.
