Abstract

This communication proposes a count mode of a rigid foundation massif frequencies, relaxing on a homogeneous soil, semi-infinite having an elastic linear behavior. Several data programs process using the finite elements method, are proposed for the dynamic analysis. Nevertheless, these programs don’t appear the physical phenomenon yielded, they depend on data introduced by the user and are applicable only for the elastic foundation massifs. The BARKAN method is an analytic one that appears the physical behavior of the different displacements and their coupling modes, the involvement of soil by its different dynamic stiffness modules, as well as a constant verification of its application. Well, it remains an approached method because it doesn’t exist an exact count method currently.

Analysis and Behavior of a Rigid Foundation Massif under the Effect of Vibrations (Application of Barakan Method)

San Diego, California

This communication proposes a count mode of a rigid foundation massif frequencies, relaxing on a homogeneous soil, semi-infinite having an elastic linear behavior. Several data programs process using the finite elements method, are proposed for the dynamic analysis. Nevertheless, these programs don’t appear the physical phenomenon yielded, they depend on data introduced by the user and are applicable only for the elastic foundation massifs. The BARKAN method is an analytic one that appears the physical behavior of the different displacements and their coupling modes, the involvement of soil by its different dynamic stiffness modules, as well as a constant verification of its application. Well, it remains an approached method because it doesn’t exist an exact count method currently.
