Analysis of Source Location Algorithms Part I: Overview and Non-Iterative Methods
This article and the accompanying one discuss the source location theories and methods that are used for earthquake, microseismic and acoustic emission studies. The present paper provides an overview of the principles of source location methods as well as a detailed analysis of several principal approaches, including triaxial sensor method, zonal location technique and non-iterative algorithms. The accompanying paper is devoted entirely to the iterative methods because of their particular importance. A thorough and in-depth analysis is provided for the derivative and Simplex methods in order to develop a fundamental understanding of the mechanics of these methods.
