Project Description

2DSPEC is a Spectral element code solving the wave propagation inside heterogeneous media with possible rupture dynamics as a boundary condition.
2DSPEC handles unstructured meshes and runs on both single and parallel machines, for the latter using MPI communications. Absorbing boundary conditions are implemented via stress-velocity PML.
