Abstract

This paper develops an analytical method for the calculation of the earthquake-induced settlement of foundation by using Biot's type consolidation equation. In order to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed method, a comparison of the numerical result with the observed earthquake-induced settlement on the site at Sendai in Japan caused by the miyagioki earthquake in 1987 will be presented.

Prediction of Settlements of Soft Clay Caused by Earthquakes

St. Louis, Missouri

This paper develops an analytical method for the calculation of the earthquake-induced settlement of foundation by using Biot's type consolidation equation. In order to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed method, a comparison of the numerical result with the observed earthquake-induced settlement on the site at Sendai in Japan caused by the miyagioki earthquake in 1987 will be presented.
