Abstract

Experiences from past earthquake disasters clearly shows that the ground motion was responsible for majority of property and life loss. Among the collapsed structures during the 1964 Niigata earthquake, the 1995 Kobe earthquake, the 1999 Koceli earthquake, the 2001 Bhuj earthquake and the 2004 Sumatra earthquake, excessive damage was occurred to pile supported bridges, towers, chimneys, high rise structures, etc. In view of this there is a need to study the complex behavior of soil-pile-structure interaction problems using numerical methods. In this research paper, a numerical study is carried out to understand the dynamic soil structure interaction of a high rise structure in a visco elastic half space in the presence of near by pile supported structures. The structure soil structure interaction is modelled by considering the direct methodology using a Finite element method based code ANSYS 10. Initially a two dimensional study is carried out for understanding the seismic response of group of high rise structures supported on pile foundations. The linear super structures are considered as framed structures of different dynamic characteristics suported on group of piles. Different case studies are made one in which the group effect of structures supported on piles are considered like group of two identical structures, group of three identical structures and group of three different structures, second one in which the effect of variability in structure height is considered like 5 storey structure, 10 storey structure and 15 storey structure and the third one in which the effect of variability in structure shape is considered. For each case the effect of structure soil structure interaction on seismic response is compared with fixed base response.

Dynamic Soil Structure Interaction Analysis of Pile Supported High Rise Structures

San Diego, California

Experiences from past earthquake disasters clearly shows that the ground motion was responsible for majority of property and life loss. Among the collapsed structures during the 1964 Niigata earthquake, the 1995 Kobe earthquake, the 1999 Koceli earthquake, the 2001 Bhuj earthquake and the 2004 Sumatra earthquake, excessive damage was occurred to pile supported bridges, towers, chimneys, high rise structures, etc. In view of this there is a need to study the complex behavior of soil-pile-structure interaction problems using numerical methods. In this research paper, a numerical study is carried out to understand the dynamic soil structure interaction of a high rise structure in a visco elastic half space in the presence of near by pile supported structures. The structure soil structure interaction is modelled by considering the direct methodology using a Finite element method based code ANSYS 10. Initially a two dimensional study is carried out for understanding the seismic response of group of high rise structures supported on pile foundations. The linear super structures are considered as framed structures of different dynamic characteristics suported on group of piles. Different case studies are made one in which the group effect of structures supported on piles are considered like group of two identical structures, group of three identical structures and group of three different structures, second one in which the effect of variability in structure height is considered like 5 storey structure, 10 storey structure and 15 storey structure and the third one in which the effect of variability in structure shape is considered. For each case the effect of structure soil structure interaction on seismic response is compared with fixed base response.
