Abstract:This paper presents a fast sweeping method (FSM) to calculate the first‐arrival traveltimes of the qP, qSV, and qSH waves in two‐dimensional (2D) transversely isotropic media, whose symmetry axis may have an arbitrary orientation (tilted transverse isotropy [TTI]). The method discretizes the anisotropic eikonal equation with finite difference approximations on a rectangular mesh and solves the discretized system iteratively with the Gauss‐Seidel iterations along alternating sweeping orderings. At each mesh poi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
