Mw 6.2 2011 Christchurch Earthquake

Introduction The analysis of surface or underground train-induced ground vibrations a nd their effect on human beings and surrounding structures is of  paramount importance, especially for environmental impact studies of new high-speed train lines crossing urban areas. This problem is  particularly challenging and demanding from a computational point of view, […]
