Abstract : This paper investigates axial wave propagation in a moving threadline. In particular, a more general formulation is introduced wherein the stretch (extension ratio) is employed together with a nonlinear constitutive law. Some specific examples are detailed, the shock problem is considered and the evolution of discontinuities from smooth initial data is examined. (Author)
