The velocity of each particle between two successive collisions is obviously not constant and it is defined by harmonic oscillation equations.

What a wavefront is (in this case of many particles moving and "colliding" according to harmonic oscillations), is the where a close distance between the particles is, as seen at every frozen frame of the movie. And there is a gradual increase of this distance as we are departing from the wavefront.

My question is, suppose every particle is moving with constant velocity between each change of its direction, and each change of its direction means a collision by contact with another particle. In this case, can it be produced a trevelling wavefront which will again mean "the where a close distance between the particles is, as seen at every frozen frame of the movie. And there is a gradual increase of this distance as we are departing from the wavefront"?
