Comparison of Two Methods in Solving Rayleigh Dispersion Curves
The Rayleigh dispersion curves of multilayered soil are calculated by means of thin-layer method and rapid scalar method, respectively, in which two-layered and three-layered soil model are adopted. In addition, the disperse properties of multilayered soil are analyzed, and it is found that thin layer method is superior to rapid scalar method in low frequency domain, while in the high frequency domain it has little difference between each other.
