The modified Abo Zena method; a fast algorithm for dispersion calculation of high-frequency surface waves



The modified Abo Zena method; a fast algorithm for dispersion calculation of high-frequency surface waves



Wutan Huatan Jisuan Jishu = Computing Techniques for Geophysical and Geochemical Exploration 24(3): 204-208



The modified Anas Abo-Zena method for computing surface wave dispersion functions, which is a stable algorithm at very high frequencies and can be used to calculate dispersion curves for site investigations and non-intrusive diagnosis, is discussed. The solution of dispersion functions by the Monte Carlo method is discussed and compared to such solutions using the Newton iteration method. Results show that the Monte Carlo method can tackle the inverse velocity profile, which difficult to resolve using the Newton iteration method.
