Abstract:A second-order accurate, explicit finite-difference scheme is presented for the numerical solution of elastic wave propagation in a circular disk subjected to traction boundary conditions. One face of the disk is subjected to an axisymmetric loading while the rest of the boundary is traction free. The temporal dependence of the forcing function is taken to be trapezoidal. The governing partial differential equations are discretized by using second-order accurate central difference schemes in both time and space. A stability criterion is derived by using the classical von Neumann analysis. The numerical results are compared with the analytical results from a modal analysis approach and the agreement is excellent till times as late as 60 microseconds where, the traversal time of a longitudinal wave across the thickness is approximately 4.5 microseconds. Further, for timedependent loading, the numerical results are compared with those from a corresponding mixed problem. Our results show that even for time-dependent loading, the solution to the mixed problem approximates the solution to the nonmixed problem accurately for large enough distances in the axial direction.
