Scattering of plane P waves by circular-arc layered alluvial valleys: An analytical solution
- 25 Downloads
An analytical solution for scattering of plane P waves by circular-arc layered alluvial valleys was derived by Fourier-Bessel series expansion technique, and the solution was utilized to analyze the effects of alluvial sequence and their relative stiffness on the scattering of incident waves.
