You can see Shive giving a 30 minute lecture using his wave machine on ATT's
website.

Hi B. R.,

Some things you can add to your list:

1. Show the limits to the series of normal modes for the driven
standing waves; show the low frequency limit; Show the high frequency
cutoff.
2. Show how the normal mode frequencies are different for the open
ended case of standing waves and the close ended case of standing waves.
3. Before showing impedance matching, show partial transmission and
partial reflection.

You can get this classic, excellent Teaching Book on Amazon:

Similarities in Wave Behavior: Teacher's Edition (The Bell Telephone
Laboratory Series) [Paperback]
by John N. Shive

My Best to you from the States,

Hi,

I am planning a kit on making a Shive machine and doing experiments with it.
What experiments can I do? Here is my list:
1. Travelling waves, reflection from unclamped end.
2. Travelling waves, reflection from clamped end.
3. Superposition of pulses.
4. Standing waves
5. Impedance matching
6. Dependence of wavelength and speed on length of rods and distance between
rods
7. Frequency windows

Any other simple experiments? I do not want anything very complex, as the
shive machines would be made with spokes and sticky tape!

Also, there is a reference to a guide written by Shive. Any idea where it
would be available?
