The other day I was having lunch with a engineer I know. A subject we talked about began with me expressing frustration with displacement/modal based dynamic analysis (in programs like STAAD) that sometimes didn't predict vibrations (that occurred in real life) at other levels /locations of buildings. He suggested to me a wave propagation model could possibly solve those issues. I personally have never used such a model (I'm not even aware of any software that does). So I thought I'd ask here: has anyone here used such a technique? If so, were you satisfied with the results? Does it indeed "spread out" the vibration "better"?
