A model of seismic excitation

Piero Villaggio (2004)

Atti della Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. Classe di Scienze Fisiche, Matematiche e Naturali. Rendiconti Lincei. Matematica e Applicazioni

The influence of a seismic wave on a building is customarily described as a force, a function of the time, whose explicit expression is prescribed. We here suggest a one-dimensional model able to relate this force to the sudden onset of a fault in the rock layer on which the building is built.

A new numerical model for propagation of tsunami waves

Karel Švadlenka (2007)

Kybernetika

A new model for propagation of long waves including the coastal area is introduced. This model considers only the motion of the surface of the sea under the condition of preservation of mass and the sea floor is inserted into the model as an obstacle to the motion. Thus we obtain a constrained hyperbolic free-boundary problem which is then solved numerically by a minimizing method called the discrete Morse semi-flow. The results of the computation in 1D show the adequacy of the proposed model.

A spectral study of an infinite axisymmetric elastic layer

Lahcène Chorfi (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We present here a theoretical study of eigenmodes in axisymmetric elastic layers. The mathematical modelling allows us to bring this problem to a spectral study of a sequence of unbounded self-adjoint operators An, n , in a suitable Hilbert space. We show that the essential spectrum of An is an interval of type [ γ , + [ and that, under certain conditions on the coefficients of the medium, the discrete spectrum is non empty.

About asymptotic approximations in thin waveguides

Nicole Turbe, Louis Ratier (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis

We study the propagation of electromagnetic waves in a guide the section of which is a thin annulus. Owing to the presence of a small parameter, explicit approximations of the TM and TE eigenmodes are obtained. The cases of smooth and non smooth boundaries are presented.
