Abstract

Wave propagation due to shock loading on the surface of elastic inhomogeneous half-space is considered. The shock loading is applied over a circular area in the form of suddenly applied vertical and shear stress. The analysis makes use of semi-analytical finite element formulation and explicit time integration technique. Extrapolation algorithm is employed for modelling the transmitting boundaries. Details of numerical procedure adopted are given and results of typical analysis are presented and discussed.

Elastic Wave Propagation in Inhomogeneous Media due to Surface Shock Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

Wave propagation due to shock loading on the surface of elastic inhomogeneous half-space is considered. The shock loading is applied over a circular area in the form of suddenly applied vertical and shear stress. The analysis makes use of semi-analytical finite element formulation and explicit time integration technique. Extrapolation algorithm is employed for modelling the transmitting boundaries. Details of numerical procedure adopted are given and results of typical analysis are presented and discussed.
