Abstract

In urbanized areas, vibration induced settlement on granular soils depends on vibration characteristics including vibration path and source, in-situ stress conditions, and soil properties. Quantitative laboratory assessment of settlement was extrapolated using parametric study of in-situ settlement of sands. It is shown that vibration amplitude should be monitored within the vulnerable soil layers or evaluated considering attenuation characteristics of soil. Combining the effects of influencing factors, the discussed model can be utilized to predict vibration induced settlement of structures on sand.
