har·mon·ic

(har-mon'ik),
A component of complex sound, the frequency of which is a multiple of the fundamental frequency, which is also called the first harmonic; the second harmonic has twice the frequency of the fundamental, and so forth.

They showed in the model that the amplitude of the second harmonic wave was dependent on the dislocation displacement as follows:
Because the harmonic waves are formed within the body, they suffer less from the reverberation artifacts generated in the overlying fat and muscle.
The harmonic waves are directly reflected back to the diode due to the diode connecting form is in series but not in parallels.
Application of transformation of ABP and ICP slow harmonic waves into rect(t) type signals is at the first time proposed in this work for elimination of PRx(t) non-linear distortions.
The positions of the fundamental, second, third harmonic waves are represented by [P.
In this study an analytical explicit solution of the counter-propagation and interaction of waves is derived for the case of harmonic waves
