Description

Plane compressional wave propagation in a fluid is significantly affected by the shear viscosity of the fluid [1]. Several different theories have been developed [2,3,4] to understand effects of viscosity on wave propagation characteristics. Presence of concurring phenomena such as thermal conductive losses and molecular relaxations [5] has frurther complicated the study of wave propagation. In liquids however, the effect of thermal conductivity is not comparable to the viscous losses [1]. In such cases, it has been possible to associate viscosity with the wave propagation characteristics.
