The wave velocity assumes higher values than the liquid velocity but lower than the gas velocity.
The researchers found that for recipients of older kidneys, pulse wave velocity was increased by one meter per second.
In this research, elastic wave velocities calculated from the algorithm are used to investigate the effect of averaging process that yields a single value comparable to the average elastic wave velocity measured in the laboratory.
The Spectral Analysis of Surface Wave (SASW) is a non-destructive method that is based on the dispersion of Rayleigh waves that has been developed to determine the shear wave velocity corresponding to dynamic stiffness and thickness of each layer of the pavement profile.
The emergence of a transversal wave in a solid leads inevitably to a particle displacement on a perpendicular direction to wave velocity vector, the longitudinal deformation being ignore.
Multi channel analysis of surface waves (Park et al., 1999, Xia et al., 1999), is a non-invasive method developed to estimate shear wave velocity profile from surface wave energy.
The average P wave velocity at depths from 0 up to 1 km is 5.39 km/s.
NIST has advanced the technology both experimentally and theoretically by dealing with elastically anisotropic materials at frequencies approaching 500 MHz and by developing a Greens function formalism that speeds up and simplifies the deduction of elastic properties from surface wave velocity measurements.
There were significant associations between post-season aortic root size and weight, SBP, pulse wave velocity (PWV), and LV diastolic tissue velocity in the total cohort.
The mean carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity of the participants, which is an indicator of vascular compliance, was 9.8 m/s before sauna, decreasing to 8.6 m/s immediately after.
