The orthogonal eigensolutions for the vibrations of an isotropic finite solid cylinder with a traction-free lateral boundary and rigid-smooth end boundaries are provided. The transient elastodynamic response of this solid cylinder is then constructed using the method of eigenfunction expansion and further extended explicitly and concisely to that of an isotropic infinite solid cylinder. The numerically evaluated analytical solution is shown to compare favorably with that by finite element method (FEM). The effect of external forces on the excitation of each guided wave mode can be quantitatively investigated on the basis of the present solution. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
