The present paper is devoted to the non-stationary problems in dynamics of elastic systems with moving loads. We deal with the simplest type of an elastic waveguide - a string on an elastic foundation. The moving load is modelled by the Dirac function. It is quite interesting to consider the case when the load moves with an acceleration and passes through the sonic speed. Both analytical and numerical methods are used in this investigation.
