Wave Equation

A mathematical equation that describes the mechanics of force transmission along an elastic rod (pile) that has been subjected to an impact from a mass having a specific initial velocity from which the motion and stress at any point along a pile being driven can be computed. Evaluates driving stresses and the relationship of capacity to blow count. Also referred to as wave equation analysis or wave equation program, and known by software names of TTI Program, MICROWAVE, GRLWEAP, AllWave-PDP, AllWave-VDP.
