Abstract

A series of cyclic triaxial loading tests with varying strain amplitude were performed on samples of clay and sand. Three types of polynomial functions and a hyperbolic function were applied to express the experimental nonlinear hysteresis curve of soils under cyclic loading conditions. These functions were used for the earthquake response analysis of the actual ground containing alluvial clay layer and of the idealized saturated sandy soil ground whose stiffness gradually decreases as the development of pore-water pressure. The results of the dynamic responses and the liquefaction potential were compared for a particular actual site and an idealized site by using the presented models and the hyperbolic function model.

A New Soil Model and Dynamic Soil Properties

St. Louis, Missouri

A series of cyclic triaxial loading tests with varying strain amplitude were performed on samples of clay and sand. Three types of polynomial functions and a hyperbolic function were applied to express the experimental nonlinear hysteresis curve of soils under cyclic loading conditions. These functions were used for the earthquake response analysis of the actual ground containing alluvial clay layer and of the idealized saturated sandy soil ground whose stiffness gradually decreases as the development of pore-water pressure. The results of the dynamic responses and the liquefaction potential were compared for a particular actual site and an idealized site by using the presented models and the hyperbolic function model.
