High-frequency oscillations of soil beds under force and wave excitation in an arbitrary direction

Soil Mechanics


The high-frequency oscillations of a uniform isotropic half space under force excitation are discussed. Solutions known from the literature are analyzed for special cases. Simple equations are derived for high-frequency asymptotics in the general case. Oscillations during wave excitation are investigated.
