Propagation of transient mechanical waves in porous media is numerically investigated in 1D. The framework is the linear Biot's model with frequency-independant coefficients. The coexistence of a propagating fast wave and a diffusive slow wave makes numerical modeling tricky. A method combining three numerical tools is proposed: a fourth-order ADER scheme(More)
A numerical method is described for studying how elastic waves interact with imperfect contacts such as fractures or glue layers existing between elastic solids. These contacts have been classicaly modeled by interfaces, using a simple rheological model consisting of a combination of normal and tangential linear springs and masses. The jump conditions(More)
