If the speed of light were smaller than it is, would relativistic phenomena mp-chaptsol in conjunction with the Earthquake Engineering.
To encourage familiarity with both sets of units, some example and homework problems are specified in metric units and some in British units. A number of people have helped directly and indirectly in the preparation of this book. The professional and academic portions of my career have benefited greatly from a number of people that I have worked closely with, particularly in chronological order Bill Houston, Tom Tejima, H.

Their assistance, advice, and encouragement has taken many forms, and I am grateful to each. The earth weighs some 5. Since the spe- cific gravity of surficial rocks is known to be on the order of 2. One of the first important achievements in seismology was the determination of the internal structure of the earth.
Large earthquakes produce enough energy to cause measur- able shaking at points all around the world. As the different types of seismic waves travel through the earth, they are refracted and reflected at boundaries between different layers, reaching different points on the earth's surface by different paths.
Studies of these refrac- tions and reflections early in this century revealed the layered structure of the earth and pro- vided insight into the characteristics of each layer. Although seismic waves are discussed in detail in Chapter 5, the brief description that follows is necessary to explain some of the concepts of Chapters 2 to 4. Body waves, which can travel through the interior of the earth, are of two types: p-waves and s-waves Figure 2.
P-waves, also known as primary, compressional, or lon- gitudinal waves, involve successive compression and rarefaction of the materials through which they pass.
They are analogous to sound waves; the motion of an individual particle that a p-wave travels through is parallel to the direction of travel. Like sound waves, p-waves can travel through solids and fluids.
S-waves, also known as secondary, shear, or transverse waves, cause shearing deformations as they travel through a material. The motion of an individual particle is perpendicular to the direction of s-wave travel. As the different types of seismic waves travel through the earth.
