Seismic strong motion synthetics by Bruce A Bolt( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seismic Strong Motion Synthetics describes the methods of modeling the production of strong seismic ground motions by realistic seismic sources. Organized into six chapters, this book highlights the different ways of numerical treatment and the available computationally rapid and conceptually simple algorithms. The introductory chapter describes the intense bursts of radiation emitted during sudden changes in the rupture-front velocity occurring when the zone of slip reaches regions of differing stress drop. This topic is followed by an overview of the observations of seismic waves close t
Geophysics by Bruce A Bolt( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 13: Geophysics is a 10-chapter text that focuses with the theoretical solid-earth geophysics. This volume specifically covers the general topics of terrestrial magnetism and electricity, the Earth's gravity field, tidal deformations, dynamics of global spin, spin processing, and convective models for the deep interior. This volume surveys first the construction of mathematical models, such as the representation of the geomagnetic field by assuming arrangements of multipole sources in the core and the fast computer evaluation of two- and three-dimens
Seismology: surface waves and earth oscillations by Bruce A Bolt( Book )

12 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 11: Seismology: Surface Waves and Earth Oscillations is a five-chapter text that deals with the computational analysis of surface waves and the eigenvibrations of the Earth. Chapter 1 describes the advances in the numerical modeling of geological structures where the appropriate partial differential equations with boundary conditions for heterogeneous materials are solved using an intricate finite difference scheme. Chapter 2 presents the computer techniques of processing seismograms to obtain information on the dispersion of seismic surface waves
Seismology : body waves and sources by Bruce A Bolt( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods in Computational Physics, Volume 12: Seismology: Body Waves and Sources is a six-chapter text that covers the numerical solution of some major problems on seismic body wave propagation and generation in the Earth. Chapter 1 considers the power of the computer to trace out detailed seismic response by means of ray theory, based from the results gathered in Soviet Union and the Continent. Chapter 2 exposes the finite difference methods employed to obtain complete theoretical seismograms for a source in a layered half-space, in wedges, and in a sphere, along with an outline of normal
Volcanoes & earthquakes by Martin F. J Flower( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses earthquakes and volcanoes, their causes and how they affect the earth. Also includes a section on predicting these occurrences and how to protect yourself
