Abstract

An international joint research program, Large-Scale Seismic Test (LSST) Program at Hualien, Taiwan, is ongoing, where a large-scale model structure partly embedded in gravelly layer was constructed, in-depth site soil geotechnical investigation was performed at every one of four construction stages, that is, before excavation, after excavation before structure construction, after structure construction before backfill, and after backfill, forced vibration tests (FVTs) of the model structure before backfill (FVT-1) and after backfill (FVT-2) were performed, and seismic observation of the dynamic SSI (soil-structure interaction) system is underway. This paper describes the change of the shear wave velocity (Vs) accompanied by the construction stage progress, and predictive and correlative FVT analyses, taking above-mentioned Vs change into account.

Soil Investigation and FVT Analysis in Hualien LSST SSI Research

St. Louis, Missouri

An international joint research program, Large-Scale Seismic Test (LSST) Program at Hualien, Taiwan, is ongoing, where a large-scale model structure partly embedded in gravelly layer was constructed, in-depth site soil geotechnical investigation was performed at every one of four construction stages, that is, before excavation, after excavation before structure construction, after structure construction before backfill, and after backfill, forced vibration tests (FVTs) of the model structure before backfill (FVT-1) and after backfill (FVT-2) were performed, and seismic observation of the dynamic SSI (soil-structure interaction) system is underway.
