A linear model for attenuation of waves is presented, with Q, or the portion of energy lost during each cycle or wavelength, exactly independent of frequency. The wave propagation is completely specified by two parameters, e.g., Q and Co, a phase velocity at an arbitrary reference frequency w0. A simple exact derivation leads to an expression for the phase velocity c as a function of frequency: C/Co = (w/w0)*, where 7 = (l/•r) tan -x (l/Q). Scaling relationships for pulse propagation are… CONTINUE READING
