Summary: The forced vibration problem of a finite sphere with an exciting source embedded inside it has been investigated. The source is assumed to oscillate sinusoidally and the complex dilatational modulus is used to describe the motion inside the sphere. It is found that if the outer surface of the sphere is restrained from radial displacement, the ratio of the amplitude of a mid-point (between the outer surface of the sphere and the inner exciting source) to the amplitude of a point on the exciting source could be used as an indication of the dilatational properties of the sphere. Therefore, from the criterion of maximum amplitude ratio in conjunction with the frequency, the dilatational properties of a testing material can be determined. This method can be applied to visco-elastic fluids as well as solids.
