incident wave

incident wave

[′in·sə·dənt ¦wāv]
(electronics)
A current or voltage wave that is traveling through a transmission line in the direction from source to load.
(physics)
A wave that impinges on a discontinuity, particle, or body, or on a medium having different propagation characteristics.

Following this idea, the influence of an incident wave shape on tsunami run-up characteristics (maximal run-up height, shoreline velocity, and breaking parameter) has been studied (Didenkulova et al.
Moreover, the directionality of the scattering may be controlled and changed dramatically just by fine tuning of the frequency of the incident wave.
Even if the incident wave is a pure Lamb mode, the interaction of a wave with a defect or structural feature can result in a complicated multimode signal, since there may exist at least two propagating modes in a plate at any chosen testing frequency.
its pre incident level and 6% compared to the post incident wave of testing.
With regard to (3) the power of the incident wave varies in accordance with
The pipe corrugations enhance wave turbulence, redirecting energy in multiple directions that are not consistent with the incident wave
An incident wave at stress free thermally insulated surface z = 0 will result into four reflected coupled waves as shown in Fig.
The portion of the incident wave that is transmitted through the specimen provides a measure of the shear stress in the specimen, whereas the remaining portion of the incident wave that is reflected provides a measure of strain rate and strain (12), (24).
An experimental setup for finite length rods was conceived in order to reveal the phenomena that appear during the impact period which are the longitudinal wave's propagation inside rods, analyzing the incident wave and also the reflected wave movements through rods and also the contact time analysis between rods (Brindeu et al.
