Abstract

The secular equation of Love wave is conducted by using combined finite element method and semi-infinite element method (or analytical method) in this paper. The formulation of calculating displacement distributions is also generated. The soils can be more complicate than analytical method. The results indicate that the presented method is more advantageous than analytical method. Some numerical examples are employed to illustrate its applicability and corresponding accuracy.

Finite Element Method for Love Wave Dispersion in Soils

St. Louis, Missouri

The secular equation of Love wave is conducted by using combined finite element method and semi-infinite element method (or analytical method) in this paper. The formulation of calculating displacement distributions is also generated. The soils can be more complicate than analytical method. The results indicate that the presented method is more advantageous than analytical method. Some numerical examples are employed to illustrate its applicability and corresponding accuracy.
