Abstract

In this paper, the horizontally stratified soil layers are simplified as a shearing type multidegree of freedom linear system. The transfer function of the system is determined in accordance with the statistic analysis of the result from the mode superposition method of soil layer earthquake response. By referring to the method of finding the extreme value in probabilistic theory, a response spectrum corresponding to the power spectral density of soil layers is given. At the same time, distributions of maximum response values of acceleration, displacement, shearing strain and shearing stress of the soil layers along the depth are given according to the root mean square procedure.

A Simplified Procedure for Evaluating Maximum Response of Soil Layer during an Earthquake

St. Louis, Missouri

In this paper, the horizontally stratified soil layers are simplified as a shearing type multidegree of freedom linear system. The transfer function of the system is determined in accordance with the statistic analysis of the result from the mode superposition method of soil layer earthquake response. By referring to the method of finding the extreme value in probabilistic theory, a response spectrum corresponding to the power spectral density of soil layers is given. At the same time, distributions of maximum response values of acceleration, displacement, shearing strain and shearing stress of the soil layers along the depth are given according to the root mean square procedure.
