Clamped Edge

For conditions (5.44d), we may immediately terminate the series junctions in the five-variable mesh with an open-circuit, and the gyrator coupling can be dropped entirely, as for the case of the free boundary condition. The remaining self-loop immittances should be set as

$\displaystyle \tilde{Y}_{c,i+\frac{1}{2},0}$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle \frac{2v_{0}}{(D(1-\nu))_{i+\frac{1}{2},0}}-\frac{1}{r_{3}}$  
$\displaystyle Z_{c,i,0} =$ $\displaystyle =$ $\displaystyle \frac{v_{0}}{(\kappa^{2}Gh)_{i,0}}-r_{1}$  

which, as before, are less restrictive settings than those over the mesh interior, from (5.45).
