Abstract

The stiffness matrix approach to the solution of vertical vibrations of a circular flexible foundation embedded in a viscoelastic layered half-space have been described. Results of a parametric study, represented by displacement and soil reaction distributions and impedances, indicate a significantly different responses of flexible and rigid foundations. Important parameters are identified and include: the stiffness ratio, depth of embedment, soil stratification and loading distribution. Influence of each of the parameters is discussed.

Response of Embedded Circular Flexible Foundations

St. Louis, Missouri

The stiffness matrix approach to the solution of vertical vibrations of a circular flexible foundation embedded in a viscoelastic layered half-space have been described. Results of a parametric study, represented by displacement and soil reaction distributions and impedances, indicate a significantly different responses of flexible and rigid foundations. Important parameters are identified and include: the stiffness ratio, depth of embedment, soil stratification and loading distribution. Influence of each of the parameters is discussed.
