A numerical solution by R. M. Davies of the Pochhammer frequency equation is used to determine the displacement and strain-energy distribution across the cross section of an infinite elastic circular cylindrical rod for a number of wave lengths of the first, second, and third modes of symmetrical longitudinal wave propagation. With these results the effect of a thin uniform layer of viscoelastic material is investigated. The four viscoelastic parameters of the coating are reduced to one in the definition and computation of upper and lower bounds of the loss factor, and the application of results to experimental work is discussed.
