Abstract:

The work reported consists of three task areas a development of constitutive models and computer methods for calculating stress wave effects in geologic media in the vicinity of a buried energy source, b verification of the computer models and their application to examine the sensitivity of ground motion predictions to the material parameters assumed in the constitutive models, and c development of methods for calculating the perturbation of residual tectonic stress-strain distributions induced by changing the pore water pressure.
