Detecting Fronts of Elastic Wave Using 3C Sensor
Elastic body waves are related to di latational and shear components of the displacement field. Wavefront detection and phase characterization are better achieved with the 3C sensors, which allow use of polarization analysis. Separation of components into stationary and random is achieved with the higher statistical moments of the time-frequency distributions. Similar statistics can be used as a triggering criterion instead of conventional averaged time window ratios.
