Abstract

Seismic waves are elastic waves that propagate in the earth. Specifically, seismic waves induce elastic deformation of particles, represented by an infinitesimally small volume around a point, within the soil and rock column along the propagation path in the subsurface. The term elastic refers to the type of deformation that vanishes upon removal of the stress that has caused it.
