A nodal high-order discontinuous Galerkin method for elastic wave propagation in arbitrary heterogeneous media

Abstract : We present an extension of the nodal discontinuous Galerkin method for elastic wave propagation to high interpolation orders and arbitrary heterogeneous media. The high-order lagrangian interpolation is based on a set of nodes with excellent interpolation properties in the standard triangular element. In order to take into account highly variable geological media, another set of suitable quadrature points is used where the physical and mechanical properties of the medium are defined. we implement the methodology in a 2D discontinuous Galerkin solver. First, a convergence study confirms the hp-convergence of the method in a smoothly varying elastic medium. Then we show the advantages of the present methodology, compared to the classical one with constant properties within the elements, in terms of complexity of the mesh generation process by analyzing the seismic amplification of a soft layer over an elastic half space. Finally, to verify the proposed methodology in a more complex and realistic configuration, we compare the simulation results with the ones obtained by the spectral element method for a sedimentary basin with a realistic gradien velocity profile.
