Seismic risk assessment by a discontinuous Galerkin method
Participants : Nathalie Glinsky, Stéphane Lanteri, Fabien Peyrusse.
The objective of this research grant with IFSTTAR http://www.ifsttar.fr (French institute of sciences and technology for transport, development and networks) and CETE Méditerranée is concerned with the numerical modeling of earthquake dynamics taking into account realistic physical models of geological media relevant to this context. In particular, a discontinuous Galerkin method will be designed for the solution of the elastodynamic equations coupled to an appropriate model of physical attenuation of the wave fields for the characterization of a viscoelastic material.
