A method has been developed for measuring the acoustic impedance of fluids in a fluid-filled waveguide terminated at each end by piezoelectric crystals. Output voltage waveforms were computed for the general case of an arbitrary driving voltage. Analysis of these output waveforms, when the driving voltage was an impulse function, indicated significant changes in the voltage envelopes as the acoustic impedance of the fluid within the waveguide was varied.

Characterization of stable kinetic equilibria of rigid, dipolar rod ensembles for coupled dipole-dipole and Maier-Saupe potentials Zhou, Hong; Wang, H. Y.; Wang, Q.; Forest, M. G. (2007);We study equilibria of the Smoluchowski equation for rigid, dipolar rod ensembles where the intermolecular potential couples the dipole-dipole interaction and the Maier-Saupe interaction. We thereby extend previous analytical ...
