Wave propagation in a homogeneous VTI media (32)

Animations - Anisotropy A pressure source was used to generate waves, and the quantity displayed is the divergence of the particle velocity. The presence of low-amplitude qSV-waves in this plot results from the fact that in anisotropic media, a uniform strain does not produce a uniform hydrostatic pressure and vice versa.

Wave propagation in a homogeneous VTI media (33)

Animations - Anisotropy A vertical-force source in the y-axis was used to generate waves, and the quantity displayed is the vertical component of the particle velocity.
