Unformatted text preview: Soil Dynamics Lecture 06 Stress Waves in Infinite Media © Luis A. Prieto-Portar, August 2006. The equation of motion of a stress wave in an elastic medium. Consider an element of an elastic medium, as shown below, with all the possible stresses on each of its six faces. x The equation of motion can be found through a summation of the forces along all three axes, and using Newton’s second law ( F = ma ), ( )( )( ) 2 2 yx zx x x x zx zx yx yx y x Consider the displacement u in t he x direction, dx dydz dz dxdy dy dxdz x z y u dx dy dz t Simplifying,and expanding to all three axes, x τ τ σ σ σ τ τ τ τ σ σ τ τ τ τ σ σ τ τ τ τ σ σ τ τ τ τ ρ τ σ − ∂ ∂ ∂ + − + + − + + − ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ = ∂ ∂ ∂ + ∂ 2 2 2 2 2 2 x zx xy y zy yz xz z u y z t v x y z t w x y z t τ ρ τ σ τ τ σ τ τ σ τ τ σ τ ρ τ τ σ τ σ τ σ τ σ ρ ∂ ∂ + = ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ + + = ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ + + = ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ Compression stress waves (P-waves, or Primary waves or Dilatational waves).
