Abstract

In this article, the time domain madal analysis technique for evaluating the nonstationary responses of linear systems is combined with the equivalent linearization approach for determining the stationary responses of nonlinear soil structures. A new analysis method is formed and the nonstationary responses of the earth and rockfill dam are calculated. The results from nonstationary analysis are compared with the ones from the stationary computations. The effectiveness of nonstationarity of input and output is investigated and the relevant conclusions are given.

Nonstationary Stochastic Seismic Response Analysis for Earth and Rockfill Dams

St. Louis, Missouri

In this article, the time domain madal analysis technique for evaluating the nonstationary responses of linear systems is combined with the equivalent linearization approach for determining the stationary responses of nonlinear soil structures. A new analysis method is formed and the nonstationary responses of the earth and rockfill dam are calculated. The results from nonstationary analysis are compared with the ones from the stationary computations. The effectiveness of nonstationarity of input and output is investigated and the relevant conclusions are given.
