Rochester Academy of Science 2020-2021 First Place Undergraduate Student Research Grant Award Winner Juliana South, University of Rochester. Attenuation in Granular Materials.
Juliana South, University of Rochester. Attenuation in Granular Materials. Sponsor: Alice Quillen, Ph.D., Professor of Physics and Astronomy.
To improve understanding of the transmission of energy in granular materials, we propose to carry out laboratory attenuation experiments on dry gravel through the administration of pulses and signals. With the current conflict between the jolt and seismic reverberation attenuation models in the literature we aim to differentiate between the two models in our regime by making a precise measurement of attenuation.
