Abstract

The Design Office practice for the analysis and design of frame foundation generally ignores the soil structure interaction effects on the response of the frame foundation. A 210 MW T.G. frame foundation is analyzed using various standard approaches as well as using 3-0 finite element analysis. The analysis is carried out for fixed base as well as for elastic base conditions. Linear and rotational soil springs are considered to include the effect of base elasticity. The results of the analysis are presented. The analysis reveals that the soil structure interaction effects are significant both on the dynamic response parameters as well as on the strength parameters.

Soil Structure Interaction Effects on the Response of 210 MW T.G. Frame Foundations
