Benchmarking the two-dimensional finite difference synthetic seismogram code
MetadataShow full item record
During the past six months, the two-dimensional finite difference synthetic seismogram code was installed and run on a number of different computer systems. The results were compared for timing, accuracy and the ease with which the code was adapted to each system. This report documents the software modifications and the method used to implement the finite difference code on each computer, and presents the results of the benchmark survey.

Hunt, Mary M.; Gove, Lee; Stephen, Ralph A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1983-11)In order to study seismic wave propagation through laterally varying sea floor structures, a software package has been created to generate synthetic seismograms by finite differences. The elastic wave equation can ...
Hunt, Mary M.; Stephen, Ralph A. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1986-11)Over the past eight years, a software package has been developed to solve the elastic wave equation by the method of finite differences (Hunt et al., 1983; Stephen, 1983; Stephen, 1984a; Stephen, 1984b; Nicoletis, 1981). ...
Allen, Julie M.; Burns, D. R. (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1989-10)A three dimensional, second order finite difference method was used to create synthetic seismograms for elastic wave propagation in heterogeneous media. These synthetic seismograms are used to model rough seafloor, the ...
