Abstract

The consideration of highly irregular topography or heterogeneities and singularities in the domain are necessary for solving a wide variety of seismic problems, e. g. earthquake site studies. Therefore, the use of a meshless method (MM) with the possibility of employing an irregular grid point distribution can be of interest for modeling this kind of problems. The tradition of using Finite Different Methods for modeling seismic wave propagation problems have allowed researches to solve it and, in fact, a numerical model using the geotechnical calculation software FLAC has been used here to validate the results. It is clear the improvement of using meshless method techniques to incorporate irregularities in a natural way.
