Abstract

Presented is the transient seismic response of alluviums with due account for the configuration and the size in view of incident wave type and the length, besides the stiffness contrast to the underlain far extending base. The BEM-FEM hybrid computation is taken in order to give a clear interpretation to the seismic wave scattering and propagation. Parametric studies are performed aiming at acquiring the relevant soil amplification which is useful information for the structural design on irregular site.

Transient Seismic Response of Irregular Sites

St. Louis, Missouri

Presented is the transient seismic response of alluviums with due account for the configuration and the size in view of incident wave type and the length, besides the stiffness contrast to the underlain far extending base. The BEM-FEM hybrid computation is taken in order to give a clear interpretation to the seismic wave scattering and propagation. Parametric studies are performed aiming at acquiring the relevant soil amplification which is useful information for the structural design on irregular site.
