Paper Abstract

The paper presents experimental investigation on generation and observation of bulk strain solitary waves in plexiglas. The thorough analysis of the available data on elastic characteristics of plexiglas and recalculation of the elastic moduli of the third order allowed to conclude that bulk compression solitons can exist in this material. It was then proved experimentally via recording of such waves both in the homogeneous wave guide and in finite wave guides with different end conditions (wave reflection from a clamped and free end of the wave guide). The results obtained are compared with previous data on soliton generation in polystyrene.
