It should be pointed out that the TNSD stability calculation is based on the idea that when the elastic aftereffect occurs (creation of the wave), the velocity rearrangement in the merging area causes intensive wave stretching.
an elastic aftereffect does not occur because TNSD is positive in such a case).
