Abstract

A finite element simulation for dynamic centrifuge test of a slope is presented. The horizontal acceleration was applied to the base of the ground, and the response of the slope was measured. The residual deformation, accompanied with a clear slip surface, was observed after the testing. The main objective of this study is to investigate the validity of a new cyclic loading model, based on the strength parameters c - φ, and the G – γ, h - γ relationships. These features are thought to be very useful for practical usage.

Numerical Analysis for Seismic Behavior of a Slope Based on a Simple Cyclic Loading Model

San Diego, California

A finite element simulation for dynamic centrifuge test of a slope is presented. The horizontal acceleration was applied to the base of the ground, and the response of the slope was measured. The residual deformation, accompanied with a clear slip surface, was observed after the testing. The main objective of this study is to investigate the validity of a new cyclic loading model, based on the strength parameters c - φ, and the G – γ, h - γ relationships. These features are thought to be very useful for practical usage.
