Abstract

By using of one-dimension equivalent linearzation seismic response analysis method, the study is performed to the different silt grounds. The influences of s-wave velocity uncertainty to the seismic acceleration peak, duration, response spectrum of silt ground are discussed in the paper. Following conclusions will he expected. (1) The relationship between the difference of seismic peak acceleration and the difference of s-wave velocity is in linear distribution approximately. The seismic peak acceleration is changed with the S-wave velocity. The seismic peak acceleration is much effected by the uncertainty of S-wave velocity. (2) The uncertainty of shear wave velocity has little influence on the seismic duration. (3) The long-period seismic response spectrum is much effected by the decreasing of shear wave velocity. Conversely, the moderate-period and short-period seismic response spectrum is much effected by the increasing of shear wave velocity. With the depth of silt layers extended, the seismic response spectrum is greater influenced by the uncertainty of shear wave velocity.

Influences of S-Wave Velocity to the Seismic Response of Silt Ground
