By means of a photoelastic method, we access the visualization of acoustic waves propagating in a one dimensional array of noncohesive cylinders. As pointed by Nesterenko in the case of spherical grains (V.F. Nesterenko, J. Appl. Mech. Tech. Phys. 24, p. 567 (1983)), the nonlinearity of the contact ...
