Abstract

A 30 story building supported by 828 piles had been subjected to the Loma Prieta earthquake in 1989. The building was heavily instrumented by strong-motion devices. This study analyzed and compared computed and recorded responses of the building by using the state-of-the-art techniques for dynamic pile-group interaction. Computed results were in good agreement with recorded ones.
