Abstract

An analytical study is carried out to predict the immediate settlement of the structures during earthquake loadings. In this analysis a three dimensions mathematical model is used to investigate the behavior of the whole system consisting of soil -foundation and structure. The deformation of different points of the foundation as well as the other parts of the structure are calculated. The time acceleration record of Tabas earthquake was used as an earthquake type of loading. The effect of the main factors on the elastic settlement of the structure such as soil elastic modulus, foundation thickness, weight of the structure and number of floors are investigated. The variations of the total and differential settlements versus different parameters are plotted and some clear results are concluded concerning the settlement behavioral of soil - structure interaction during earthquake loadings.

Effect of Soil Properties on Foundation Settlements Under Earthquake Loading

St. Louis, Missouri

An analytical study is carried out to predict the immediate settlement of the structures during earthquake loadings. In this analysis a three dimensions mathematical model is used to investigate the behavior of the whole system consisting of soil -foundation and structure. The deformation of different points of the foundation as well as the other parts of the structure are calculated. The time acceleration record of Tabas earthquake was used as an earthquake type of loading. The effect of the main factors on the elastic settlement of the structure such as soil elastic modulus, foundation thickness, weight of the structure and number of floors are investigated. The variations of the total and differential settlements versus different parameters are plotted and some clear results are concluded concerning the settlement behavioral of soil - structure interaction during earthquake loadings.
