Pendulum waves on the surface of block rock mass under dynamic impact.
Under numerical investigation is propagation of surface pendulum waves in 3D block medium. The medium is modeled by 3D lattice of masses connected with elastic springs and viscous dampers. The surface vertical pulsed concentrated loading is considered. The displacements and velocities of the surface masses are calculated. The numerical results obtained for the block medium are compared with the similar data on elastic medium and in situ experiments carried out by other researchers.
