Wave Propagation in Solid and Porous Half-Space Media
This book covers advanced topics in dynamic modeling of soil-foundation interaction, as well as the response of elastic semi-infinite media from an applications viewpoint. Advanced concepts such as solutions for analysis of elastic semi-infinite mediums, fluid motion in porous media, and nonlinearities in dynamic behavior are explained in great detail. Related theories and numerical analysis for vertical vibration, and rocking vibration of a rigid rectangular mass-less plate, and horizontal vibration of a rigid mass-less plate are presented. Throughout the book, a strong emphasis is placed on applications, and a laboratory model for elastic half-space medium is provided.
Provides a systematic solution for analysis of elastic semi-infinite mediums when subjected to different loading conditionsOffers a solution for the continuous elastic medium that is also extended to visco-elastic media by considering complex elastic modulesPresents advanced concepts in wave propagation from a practical and application-based standpoint so that readers can use the theories in the field
