The paper describes a theoretical and experimental study on the speed of the torsional elastic waves propagating in an axisymmetirc waveguide whose cross-sectional area varies periodically as an harmonic function of the axial coordinate. The approximate solution of the phase speed has been obtained using the perturbation technique for sinusoidal modulation of small amplitude. The experiment verifying the theoretical result consists of transmitting and receiving torsional waves by magnetostriction and measuring the wave speed in the waveguides with threaded surfaces.
