Abstract

In this paper we described the results or numerical simulation or shaking table test on two dimensional soil-structure interation system to verify an application or newly developed nonlinear response analysis method. This code was a so-called U-W analysis method based on the deformation theory or saturated porous material proposed by Biot and constitutive relations to simulate the nonlinear characteristics or soils were induced by the elasto-plastic theory. Input material constants or soil were decided by referring the data or popular soil element test. Because the properties or soil were heavily dependent on confining pressure, then static and dynamic soil tests were carried out under an equal low pressure to the shaking table test. The results or numerical simulation by using the material constants obtained from soil element tests were in good agreement with those or shaking table test and the applicability or our analysis method to dynamic problems was verified with the considerable confirmation.

Numerical Simulation of Shaking Table Test by Nonlinear Response Analysis Method

St. Louis, Missouri

In this paper we described the results or numerical simulation or shaking table test on two dimensional soil-structure interation system to verify an application or newly developed nonlinear response analysis method. This code was a so-called U-W analysis method based on the deformation theory or saturated porous material proposed by Biot and constitutive relations to simulate the nonlinear characteristics or soils were induced by the elasto-plastic theory. Input material constants or soil were decided by referring the data or popular soil element test. Because the properties or soil were heavily dependent on confining pressure, then static and dynamic soil tests were carried out under an equal low pressure to the shaking table test. The results or numerical simulation by using the material constants obtained from soil element tests were in good agreement with those or shaking table test and the applicability or our analysis method to dynamic problems was verified with the considerable confirmation.
