Elastic waves in periodic and non-periodic sets of hollow cylinders


Two ways of modeling of elastic wave propagation in microstructured acoustic fiber are considered. First one is the calculation of band gap parameters by FEM for phononic crystal forming cross section of fiber. Second one is immediate calculation of dispersion characteristics of elastic fiber containing hole cylindric chanels. For fiber made of fused β quarz numerical results are proposed. For the first type full forbidden gap obtained and for second two different types of modes was found.
