Abstract

This paper presents the interests of using a three-dimensional finite element model with an adequate elasto-plastic constitutive law for analyzing problems related to the construction of a complex geotechnical structure. As displacements and ground surface settlements are the key factors, which cause damages to the structure, these parameters have been carefully investigated. The stability of the whole structure is studied as well as the stability of each component. Both static and dynamic analyses (modal and spectral analysis) are performed.

3-D Dynamic Analysis for Stability of Geotechnical Structures

San Diego, California

This paper presents the interests of using a three-dimensional finite element model with an adequate elasto-plastic constitutive law for analyzing problems related to the construction of a complex geotechnical structure. As displacements and ground surface settlements are the key factors, which cause damages to the structure, these parameters have been carefully investigated. The stability of the whole structure is studied as well as the stability of each component. Both static and dynamic analyses (modal and spectral analysis) are performed.
