10.5 Model Building

The models are simple line segments with a z-intercept and a slope and overlapped circles placed in sequence. Each interface line segment is used as a boundary and all velocity grid values below the line segment are changed to the new value. The circles are used to modify these grid values, with all points within the circle of specified radius and origin acquiring a new velocity value. The sequence of lines and circles can vary to create interesting models.
