comment Is there any way a longitudinal wave can have a shear velocity component?
The fibre is a cylinder of diameter 125um - so for some wavelengths I suppose this could be considered a plate of sorts...

The medium of propagation is homogeneous (glass optical fibre) however it is surrounded by water so there is a change in acoustic impedance at the fibre boundaries.

comment How can I validate a numerical model using an analytical solution of the same scenario?
Hi Mike. Thanks for commenting :) I've added a bit more information above. Both solutions do have a constant, pure tone, however the numerical approximation cannot do this for a 'pure' sinusoid as it is temporally limited. Perhaps you are suggesting I run the simulation over a fixed period, 3 cycles say, and then use that in the comparison?

comment Why does a smaller acoustic impedance mismatch produce lower transmission?
If anyone is looking, equation 9.23 in the book available at goo.gl/FSu2j confirms this correction. Thank you david.smith :)
