Abstract

An analytical method is presented or the evaluation of dynamic soil-structure response under a simpler condition where a structure is semi-buried in level ground of layered soils. Formulas are proposed to determine the lateral soil-wall displacement and corresponding earth pressures against the sidewalls of the structure during an earthquake. The key factors affecting the dynamic response of the soil-structure system are also discussed

Simplified Evaluation for Dynamic Layered Soils-Structure Interaction

San Diego, California

An analytical method is presented or the evaluation of dynamic soil-structure response under a simpler condition where a structure is semi-buried in level ground of layered soils. Formulas are proposed to determine the lateral soil-wall displacement and corresponding earth pressures against the sidewalls of the structure during an earthquake. The key factors affecting the dynamic response of the soil-structure system are also discussed
