The physical phenomenon “standing waves compression” was first discovered in geometric models in 1981 (russian physicist Yuri Ivanov conducted a geometric analysis of wave phenomena in relation to the Albert Michelson experiment), and then justified mathematically. It was only in 1990 that an acoustic experiment was conducted to confirm the existence of this physical phenomenon.

During the experiment, the standing waves compression was found not only at the longitudinal orientation of the device to the motion of the medium, but also at any orientation. In other words, the experiment fully confirmed the theoretical predictions.

In 1990, a series of experiments with sound standing waves was carried out. In the experiments, it was reliably established that with an increase in the wind speed relative to the stationary two emitters of sound vibrations, a package of sound standing waves is compressed.

In windless weather, a standing sound wave was created between the first emitter and the second emitter (experiments usually began in the calm before a thunderstorm). With the help of a sound indicator (microphone) the node of the sound standing wave was fixed. When the wind appeared, the shift of the control node in the direction of the second emitter was fixed. The observed effect was interpreted by compression of a package of sound standing waves.

This experiment:

  • confirmed that when the speed of the system in the medium changes or the speed of the medium changes relative to the system, standing waves in the system begin to compress. That is, a new physical phenomenon called “standing waves compression” appears.
  • showed that the physical phenomenon “standing waves compression” really exists in nature and this phenomenon can manifest itself, including at the level of electromagnetic light waves. Therefore, it is likely that this phenomenon can explain the negative results of Albert Michelson experiments.
