Minimized energy used to determine displacements at an internal boundary (finite-difference models)

Peter M. Manning


The necessity for use of a unique calculation method for internal boundary conditions, as opposed to edge boundary conditions, is explained. The method of minimizing energy within the rigid zone below a water bottom is developed, and the matrix equations required are presented in some detail. Preliminary model results are shown.
