Summary
The earthquake has often taken place during recent years. At one side, it cause a great damages. But if we capture seismic wave at the htpercentre in time, we are able to deduce key information of the earthquake such as speed of propagation so that damages should be avoided to the greatest extent. At the other side, it can be useful in the sense that geologists use seismic wave to research rock structure for oil exploration. So where the necessary of simulating siesmic wave propagation.

Introduction
Earthquake An earthquake is the result of a brutal release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. The seismic activity of an area refers to the frequency, type and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. At the earth's surface, the manifestation of the earthquakes can be seen as shake and displacement of the ground. Underground, the location where occurs the release of energy is called hypocentre whereas the location on the surface is called epicentre. These
