Sonotrode calculator

As a part of the ongoing upgrade to the powerultrasonics site I've just put up a new [b]Sonotrode Calculator[/b]

This version (0.1!) only does a few simple calculations - sound velocity, tuned lengths and resonant frequency for stepped sonotrodes and rods (both of which have a tuned length of half a wavelength, ignoring the slight effects of diameter). Graphs of amplitude and stress distribution along the length are also given.

So there's plenty of room for development - I'm thinking animation, exponential sonotrodes, radial and torsional modes and a few other things, but I'm open to suggestions...

In hopes of getting some response to this I've opened up a separate board, so if you've got any ideas or requests please post them [url=]he... - Thanks.
