The peak acceleration, peak velocity, and peak displacement are 916 cm/sec2, 1
19 cm/ sec, and 88 cm, respectively. and estimate this initial value. The velocity
record is corrected by subtracting this baseline. The acceleration record is ...
is slower than the shear wave velocity so that both the P and S waves are
inhomogeneous. The phase velocity of Ray leigh waves is < = 0.91/3 in an elastic
half-space in which X « fi. Since most observations in seismology are made on
Since velocity depends only on depth, inserting (36) into the equation of motion
will yield a system of three second-order ordinary differential equations for the y(z
) functions. These equations have to be solved together with the free-surface ...
