Orthodox science and engineering recognize several wave forms or wave motions: Compression Wave (same as a Longitudinal Wave), Transverse Wave (90Â° to the Longitudinal Wave) and Rayleigh Wave or Love Wave (circular motion 90Â° to the previous two). Other models of wave activity include the use of metaphors such as coiled springs that compress and expand, penduluums swinging to and fro and various oscillating bodies such as cylinders in pistons, seesaws, water waves and floating corks. Any good text book on vibration or oscillation will cover some or all of these metaphors and the corresponding mathematics describing same.
