Stable discontinuous staggered grid in the 4 th -order finite-difference modeling of seismic ground motion Kristek 1,2, J., Moczo 1,2, P., Galis 1,2, M. 1 - Comenius University Bratislava, Slovakia 2 - Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava, Slovakia www.nuquake.eu reasonable to use a discontinuous spatial grid with a finer part, with a grid spacing h, covering the upper part of the model, and a coarser part, with a grid spacing H>h, covering the lower part of the model. The total number of grid points in the discontinuous spatial grid can be significantly smaller than that in a uniform grid. This simple idea led modelers to implement discontinuous grids in their numerical modeling. A finer spatial grid near the free surface can be also useful if the free-surface topography is to be included. A number of algorithms to include discontinuous spatial grid have been developed. They mainly differ in the allowed grid ratio H/h and the way they interpolate values at the missing grid positions in the coarser grid. In general, one could guess, the larger is the grid ratio H/h, the larger is the possibility of inaccuracy and, mainly, instability with an increasing number of time steps due to a numerical noise that is generated at the contact of the finer and coarser grids. At the same time, it is obvious that the noise generation and possible instability cannot simply correlate with the grid ratio – they may strongly depend on the material and wavefield. The possibility of instability is only rarely explicitly addressed. The very obvious problem is that of the missing grid points. This is the reason for interpolation. The other, and apparently not so obvious, problem is how to update particle velocity and stress at those grid points of the coarser grid which coincide with the grid points of the finer grid. We present an algorithm of a stable discontinuous staggered-grid. The grid ratio H/h can be an arbitrary odd number. The key feature of the algorithm is the application of the Lanczos downsampling filter. We demonstrate the stability and accuracy of the algorithm for large number of time steps.

If the finer grid sufficiently oversamples the chosen minimum wavelength in the faster medium, the 2 nd -order scheme may be applied. The application of the 2 nd -order scheme near the finer-grid boundary significantly reduces the spatial extent of interpolation. Boundary of the Coarser Grid in the Overlapping Zone The theoretically minimum wavelength that can propagate in the finer grid is 2h. In the same medium, the theoretically minimum wavelength that can propagate in the coarser grid is 2H. Consequently, the wavelengths larger than 2h but smaller than 2H cannot propagate from the finer grid into the coarser grid. Therefore, the finer-grid field values at the red-circumscribed green positions have to be downsampled before they are used to update the field values at the internal grid positions of the coarser grid. for the finer grid: interior 4th-order scheme for the coarser grid: values obtained using the Lanczos downsampling filter Top: A vertical grid plane of the spatial velocity-stress discontinuous staggered grid. Only the grid plane with positions of the normal stress-tensor components in both the finer and coarser grids is shown. The vertical grid plane with the xy-stress-tensor components in both grids is analogical. There are also vertical grid planes with the finer grid only. Figure shows the simplest possible configuration of the discontinuous grid, that is, the case with H / h = 3. The grid ratio, however, can be an arbitrary odd number : H / h = 3, 5, 7, … The velocity-stress discontinuous staggered grid Overlapping Zone Introduction If the minimum wave speed in an upper part of a computational model is smaller than that in a lower part of the model it may be Kristek, Moczo, Galis, 2010.

Lanczos downsampling filter Numerical examples Conclusions We developed an algorithm of the discontinuous grid for the 3D 4 th -order VS staggered-grid finite-difference modeling The key feature of the algorithm is the application of the Lanczos downsampling filter The ratio between the grid spacings of the coarser and finer grids can be an arbitrary odd number The algorithm allows large numbers of time levels without instability The algorithm is directly applicable also to the displacement-stress staggered-grid finite-difference scheme The concept of the Lanczos downsampling filter is general and robust – its positive effect should not be dependent on a particular algorithm of the discontinuous grid References Chaljub, Moczo, Tsuno, Bard, Kristek, Käser, Stupazzini, Kristekova, 2010, BSSA, in press.

This is reasonable because the filtered values only enter the FD approximations to spatial derivatives in the vertical direction. Interpolation Some of grid positions required by the bilinear interpolation are not available near a grid boundary. In such cases it is necessary to apply an extrapolation. Lanczos downsampling filter Application of the Lanczos filter at a grid position requires n neighboring finer-grid positions from each side. Near the grid boundary these positions are not available. At such points we do not apply the Lanczos downsampling filter. In other words, the direct finer-grid values are used for updating values at the coarser-grid points. We use PML. Therefore a potential effect (if any) is probably sufficiently eliminated.
