Abstract

Presented in this paper are the results of the analyses of dynamic soil-structure interaction effects based on recorded strong motions during Montenegro (Yugoslavia) earthquake of April 15, 1979. Acceleration time histories have been recorded by strong motion instruments installed at foundation level of structures located in the epicentral area, founded in different soil conditions including stiff, medium and soft soils. Applying substructure technique from known motions at foundation level of structures, corresponding free field motions were computed. By comparison of computed free field motions and recorded motions at foundation level, dynamic soil-structure interaction effects, in different soil conditions and levels of earthquake excitation were analysed.

Soil-Structure Interaction Effects Based on Recorded Strong Motions During Earthquakes

St. Louis, Missouri

Presented in this paper are the results of the analyses of dynamic soil-structure interaction effects based on recorded strong motions during Montenegro (Yugoslavia) earthquake of April 15, 1979. Acceleration time histories have been recorded by strong motion instruments installed at foundation level of structures located in the epicentral area, founded in different soil conditions including stiff, medium and soft soils. Applying substructure technique from known motions at foundation level of structures, corresponding free field motions were computed. By comparison of computed free field motions and recorded motions at foundation level, dynamic soil-structure interaction effects, in different soil conditions and levels of earthquake excitation were analysed.
