Solution in Time

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


Solution in space is described in the previous chapter, whereas solution in time is described in this section. There are two methods. One is made in the time domain by solving the step-by-step time integration scheme, and the other is made by converting the time domain into the frequency domain.
