The propagation of longitudinal ultrasonic waves through fresh and hardened concrete materials is strongly affected by dispersion and this is clearly indicated experimentally from the change of phase velocity at low frequencies. Analytically, only few attempts have been made to explain this dispersive behavior through enhanced elastic theories.
