Abstract

The present paper examines the problem of the dynamic behavior of a rigid circular foundation deeply embedded in bonded contact with a viscoelastic soil mass of infinite extent. The viscous phenomena are accounted for by the introduction of a complex shear modulus. By employing a rigorous mathematical analysis of the problem an explicit results is derived for the dynamic axial compliance of the embedded foundation. The numerical results presented in the paper illustrate the manner in which viscous damping influences this compliance.

The Influence of Viscoelastic Damping on the Dynamics — Behavior of an Embedded Foundation

St. Louis, Missouri

The present paper examines the problem of the dynamic behavior of a rigid circular foundation deeply embedded in bonded contact with a viscoelastic soil mass of infinite extent. The viscous phenomena are accounted for by the introduction of a complex shear modulus. By employing a rigorous mathematical analysis of the problem an explicit results is derived for the dynamic axial compliance of the embedded foundation. The numerical results presented in the paper illustrate the manner in which viscous damping influences this compliance.
