Equation of Motion: Spatial Modeling

  • Nozomu Yoshida
Part of the Geotechnical, Geological and Earthquake Engineering book series (GGEE, volume 36)


The equation of motion is a partial differential equation with respect to space and time. Therefore, it is to be solved against both variables. Among them, a method to solve with respect to space is shown in this chapter and that with respect to time is explained in the next chapter.
