3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

E3D is capable of simulating seismic wave propagation in a 3D heterogeneous earth.  Seismic waves are initiated by earthquake, explosive, and/or other sources.  These waves propagate through a 3D geologic model, and are simulated as synthetic seismograms or other graphical output.
top ]
4. METHODS

The software simulates wave propagation by solving the elastodynamic formulation of the full wave equation on a staggered grid.  The solution scheme is 4th-order accurate in space, 2nd-order accurate in time.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Time requirements are highly model dependent.  Small models can run in seconds on a desktop UNIX workstation.  Large models require many hours on a high performance or parallel computer system.  The largest model run to date required 10 hours on a 40-node dual processor Meiko CS-2.
ESTS1300/02
For the sample problem the computing time was 56s on IBM T40 linux to 335s on HP 9000/800.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES

E3D has a number of advanced features.  These include: seismic wave simulation capability in 2D/3D inhomogeneous material; absorbing boundary conditions; free-surface boundary conditions; attenuation and topographic model in (2D); hybridization; multiple source characterization; 3D model input; run-time visualization.
