Abstract:
This research has been carried out with the purpose of studying wave propagation in elastic environments as well as its simulation on the basis of numerical and analytical methods. The results obtained have been used as a case study dynamic modeling the Masjed-Soleiman’s cavern. Therefore, first the relationship between the model’s optimum mesh size and the frequency and the input wave amplification was determined so that the results obtained could be used to verify the numerical model developed for analyzing the cavern dynamically. Then, strains obtained from the wave’s propagation of earthquake in Masjed Soleiman were studied under free field boundary conditions. The results obtained show that the power house cavern of Masjed Soleiman was resistant with regard to the record applied.
