Abstract

In order to investigate the embedment effects exerted on the vibration behavior of reactor building, a series of tests is being carried out employing the use of a large-scale test model constructed on hard ground. This paper describes the embedment effects obtained from the forced vibration tests for the following items: 1) dynamic characteristics of soil-structure interaction system; 2) dynamic ground impedance; 3) soil pressure and so on.

Experimental Studies on an Embedded Soil-Structure Interaction in a Case of Hard Supporting Ground

St. Louis, Missouri

In order to investigate the embedment effects exerted on the vibration behavior of reactor building, a series of tests is being carried out employing the use of a large-scale test model constructed on hard ground. This paper describes the embedment effects obtained from the forced vibration tests for the following items: 1) dynamic characteristics of soil-structure interaction system; 2) dynamic ground impedance; 3) soil pressure and so on.
