A High-order Discontinuous Galerkin Scheme for Elastic Wave Propagation

Abstract : In this paper, we introduce a fourth-order leap-frog time scheme combined with a high-order discontinuous Galerkin method for the solution of the elastodynamic equations. The time discretization, obtained via a simple construction based on Taylor developments, provides an accurate scheme for the numerical simulation of seismic wave propagation. Results of the propagation of an eigenmode allow a numerical study of stability and convergence of the scheme for both uniform and non structured meshes proving the high level of accuracy of the method. The robustness of the scheme in the heterogeneous case is studied and we also examine the propagation of an explosive source in a homogeneous half-space.
