Abstract

To better understand the causes of pile damages during earthquakes such as Hyogoken-Nanbu Earthquake, shaking table tests of soil-pile-structure interaction models were done using a large scale laminar shear box. Because the pile response is affected by both the ground motion and the structure's inertial forces, three models were test & a soil-pile model and two soil-pile-structure models. For the latter models, superstructures with long and short natural periods were tested separately. Through comparisons among the three cases, the influences on the pile response due to the inertial force of the superstructure for the long and short natural periods were clarified and properties of the subgrade reactions in liquefied ground were determined.

Pile Response Characteristics of Liquefied Soil Layers in Shaking table Tests of a Large Scale Laminar Shear Box

San Diego, California

To better understand the causes of pile damages during earthquakes such as Hyogoken-Nanbu Earthquake, shaking table tests of soil-pile-structure interaction models were done using a large scale laminar shear box.

For the latter models, superstructures with long and short natural periods were tested separately.
