Frequency filtering in disordered granular chains

  title={Frequency filtering in disordered granular chains},
  author={Brian P. Lawney},
The study of disorder-induced frequency filtering is presented for one-dimensional systems composed of random, pre-stressed masses interacting through both linear and nonlinear (Hertzian) repulsive forces. An ensemble of such systems is driven at a specified frequency, and the spectral content of the propagated disturbance is examined as a function of distance from the source. It is shown that the transmitted signal contains only low-frequency components, and the attenuation is dependent on the… CONTINUE READING
