We implement a binary collision approximation to study pulse propagation in a chain of o-rings. In particular, we arrive at analytic results from which the pulse velocity is obtained by simple quadrature. The predicted pulse velocity is compared to the velocity obtained from the far more resource-intensive numerical integration of the equations of motion. We study chains without precompression, chains precompressed by a constant force at the chain ends ͑constant precompression͒, and chainsdoi:10.1103/physreve.82.031308 pmid:21230070 fatcat:7t6xyc2klbewvl65mmdjhqmhna
