This paper presents the analysis of a new class of differential continuum system with a solution of traveling waves containing coupled spatial and temporal variables. Herein, we derive the analytical solution of the damped vibration response of a longitudinally moving wire with damping, subject to an oscillating boundary condition. The vibration response is the outcome of combining four traveling waves, induced by a wave initiating from the oscillating boundary, and traveling between the two boundaries. The four different traveling waves are the independent bases of the vibration responses that span the solution space of vibration of such continuum system. The combination, or the interference, of these traveling waves in the undamped condition produces nodal points in the vibration response, which can be formulated through the analytical solution. The impacts of wire speed, oscillating frequency at the boundary and damping factors on the vibration response are investigated. Furthermore, the vibration induced by the oscillating motion of the boundary has a profound impact on the effectiveness of slicing ingots with rocking motion of oscillating wire guides in wiresaw manufacturing processes.
