Abstract : The report discusses the propagation of longitudinal elastic waves along the spine considered as a thin uniform rod with nonlinear elastic parameters. The response of the spine in terms of the dynamic longitudinal deformation of the spine cross section is determined and its variation with respect to axial distance and the applied frequency is noted.
