Paper Title:
Verification of UDEC Modeling 1-D Wave Propagation in Rocks
  Abstract

Three cases for 1-D wave propagation in ideal elastic rock, through single rock joint and multiple parallel rock joints are used to verify 1-D wave propagation in rocks. For the case for 1-D wave propagation through single rock joint, the magnitude of transmission coefficient obtained from UDEC results is compared with that obtained from the analytical solution. For 1-D wave propagation through multiple parallel joints, the magnitude of transmission coefficient obtained from UDEC results is compared with that obtained from the method of characteristics. For all these cases, UDEC results agree well with results from the analytical solutions and the method of characteristics. From these verification studies, it can be concluded that UDEC is capable of modeling 1-D dynamic problems in rocks.
