The problem of propagation of a pressure pulse in a nonhomogeneous elastic rod with varying cross section is discussed. The cross section, the material density, and the elastic modulus of the rod are taken to be varying in a power law form along the length of the rod and the longitudinal displacement is obtained through a method due to Keller and Keller.
