25] studied torsional wave propagation in an earth's crustal layer under the influence of imperfect interface.
Over 100 papers discuss such topics as designing a real-time autofocusing system for a collimator with a long focus length and large aperture, chance constrained model predictive control based on set-valued optimal algorithms, applying virtual prototyping technology in the design of a drive axle, the hydrodynamic forces of torsional wave propulsion by extended large-amplitude elongated-body theory, the power supply system of embedded portable devices, and numerical analysis in the residual stress test of welded joints for a wind-driven generator.
The wave is composed of 1) a torsional wave and 2) a longitudinal wave.
Torsional waves are excited by tone-burst signals generated from the signal generator which is integrated into the instrument.
Both, low frequency longitudinal wave mode L(0,2) [3] and torsional wave mode T(0,1) [4] have been found to be good candidates for such testing as their wave fields allow to achieve 100% pipe wall inspection coverage and due to non-dispersive nature their wave pulses can propagate long distances.
where C is torsional wave velocity in the bars, [D.
1] is the distance between the torque pulley and the clamp and C is torsional wave velocity in the incident bar.
As the earth's crust and mantle are not homogeneous, it is desirable to have information about torsional wave propagation in an inhomogeneous medium.
9] examined Gazis theory and clarified the modes of wave propagation, differentiating certain flexural and torsional wave modes.

Additionally, multi-mode technology, simultaneously using longitudinal and torsional waves, is being introduced to add a higher degree of accuracy.
Torsional waves (through an infinite cylinder) propagate with one constant phase velocity equal to the shear (or transverse) speed:
