For stress waves in the 10 mm diameter bar, it can be seen that the waveform becomes more oscillatory with increasing propagation distance.
However, it is obvious that the peak value of the waveform gradually decreases with the increase in propagation distance.
Following the contribution of Mungur and Plumblee [8], various aspects of wave propagation in the circular pipeline containing the shear flow were studied by many researchers, such as Gogate and Munjal [9], Ko [10], Eversman [11], Agarwal and Bull [12], and Pagneux and Froelich [13].
Due to the complexity of wave propagation in the pipeline flow, various compensation methods in the engineering aspect have been provided, which was comprehensively summarized by Chen et al.
That is, the propagation of such mobile phone virus called vulnerability-exploiting virus can be realized by itself without human participants.
Section 4 and Section 5 describe the analysis and simulation results of the propagation of a worm using the random scanning strategy from the perspective of the network bandwidth usage rate.
The beam propagation factor K ([w.sub.x]) = 0.3 and the diffraction factor [M.sup.2] ([w.sub.x]) = 3.4.
Researchers in the radio wave propagation field concluded that there is no precise enough propagation model to guarantee a recommendation [10].

For propagation in free space has been considered a diffracted field produced by a circular opening, [U.sub.0]([x.sub.1], [y.sub.1], z) in the lower left portion of that figure.
The study of Lorentz beam propagation and focusing can be extended to novel chiral waveguides [15,16], optical fiber filled with liquid crystals [17], turbulent environment [18] as well as medium with exotic electrodynamics [19].
A new approach is to use the results of the AR analysis for the input of different ANN models which are Feed Forward Back Propagation and Cascade Forward Back Propagation Models.
