EVALUATION OF SITE RESPONSE ANALYSIS FOR VERTICAL GROUND MOTIONS IN LS-DYNA USING GEOTECHNICAL DOWNHOLE ARRAY RECORDS
This study was motivated by the desire to conduct site-specific vertical site response analysis. The main body of knowledge in this field is limited to horizontal shaking, as such a goal of this study was to extend that ...
1-g Shake Table Experimental Evaluation of Building Settlements Founded on Liquefiable Soils
Post-disaster reconnaissance of areas affected by recent earthquakes in Japan and New Zealand has documented extensive damage to buildings with shallow foundations resulting from liquefaction-induced settlement. Current ...
Evaluation of Site Response Analysis Programs in Predicting Nonlinear Soil Response Using Geotechnical Downhole Array Data
Abstract: Liquefaction is a state of soil in which soil starts to behave as a fluid. This happens when the pore pressure rises up and it can’t get dissipated as fast as it is rising up during the earthquake. Trying to ...
Analytical studies of a large-scale laminar soil-box for experiments in soil-structure-interaction
Nuclear facilities frequently have deep massive foundations, which are large enough to affect the response of neighboring soil and the nature of ground shaking these facilities have to withstand. Despite this well-recognized ...
An Exploratory Experimental Evaluation of ε50 in c-ϕ soils
In this research, we explored the influence of several factors on the strain at 50% of maximum deviatoric principle stress, ε50, of c- ϕ (cohesive granular) soils. C- ϕ materials are described as Mixed Soils behaving like ...
