Soil dynamics is a moderately new branch of geotechnical engineering that has attracted huge attention in the past two decades or so. Voluminous research publications are the result of exhaustive investigations on the part of researchers in both academia and industry. In the seismic analysis of a structure founded on ground, the ground motion passes to the base of structure and then loads on structure. The response of the foundation system affects the response of the structure and vice versa, which is called dynamical soil-structure interaction. In the seismic resistant design of structures, we are most interested in the strength reduction factors to account for the nonlinear behavior that might be experienced by a structure subjected to an earthquake ground motion. Few researchers have recently attempted to assess the effect of SSI on the strength reduction factors, which is primarily controlled by the changes in the structural period and displacement ductility. This book investigates soil-structure-interaction effects considering nonlinearities occurring at the soil-foundation interface. Soil Dynamics and Foundation Modeling presents a comprehensive new concepts and techniques on soil dynamics and foundation modeling in offshore and earthquake engineering with both theory and realistic applications, and thoroughly links the practical approaches with engineering applications. It contains material pertaining to soil dynamics, earthquake engineering, and special design aspects of geotechnical engineering with basic dynamic properties of soils, machine foundations, dynamic and vibratory compaction, and pile driving response. It also reflects on new findings from research results based on recent case histories. This book will be of valuable for students, researchers, and practicing engineers, interested in this field.

The interaction of soil with structures built in and on the ground is an important field in geotechnical engineering. Its investigation represents a demanding task for the engineer. In the scope of two interdisciplinary research projects in cooperation with a team of international scientists, we investigated experimentally and numerically the behaviour of piles and pile foundations during strong earthquakes. For decades the evolution of soil mechanics was rather separate in statics and dynamics, in particular for the interaction of ground and structure. Even now the latter is often captured in calculations by simplifying assumptions which where never verified, more so in soil dynamics than in statics. Based on the present work this is no more necessary, this can be verified by interested readers up to details. At the end of this publication it is also shown that this new state of knowledge has certainly consequences for design and construction methods.

Soil-structure interaction is an area of major importance in geotechnical engineering and geomechanics Advanced Geotechnical Engineering: Soil-Structure Interaction using Computer and Material Models covers computer and analytical methods for a number of geotechnical problems. It introduces the main factors important to the application of computer methods and constitutive models with emphasis on the behavior of soils, rocks, interfaces, and joints, vital for reliable and accurate solutions. This book presents finite element (FE), finite difference (FD), and analytical methods and their applications by using computers, in conjunction with the use of appropriate constitutive models; they can provide realistic solutions for soil–structure problems. A part of this book is devoted to solving practical problems using hand calculations in addition to the use of computer methods. The book also introduces commercial computer codes as well as computer codes developed by the authors. Uses simplified constitutive models such as linear and nonlinear elastic for resistance-displacement response in 1-D problems Uses advanced constitutive models such as elasticplastic, continued yield plasticity and DSC for microstructural changes leading to microcracking, failure and liquefaction Delves into the FE and FD methods for problems that are idealized as two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) Covers the application for 3-D FE methods and an approximate procedure called multicomponent methods Includes the application to a number of problems such as dams , slopes, piles, retaining (reinforced earth) structures, tunnels, pavements, seepage, consolidation, involving field measurements, shake table, and centrifuge tests Discusses the effect of interface response on the behavior of geotechnical systems and liquefaction (considered as a microstructural instability) This text is useful to practitioners, students, teachers, and researchers who have backgrounds in geotechnical, structural engineering, and basic mechanics courses.

This book discusses contemporary issues related to soil mechanics and foundation engineering in earthworks, which are critical components in construction projects and often require detailed management techniques and unique solutions to address failures and implement remedial measures. The geotechnical engineering community continues to improve the classical testing techniques for measuring critical properties of soils and rocks, including stress wave-based non-destructive testing methods as well as methods used to improve shallow and deep foundation design. To minimize failure during construction, contemporary issues and related data may reveal useful lessons to improve project management and minimize economic losses. This book focuses on these aspects using appropriate methods in a rather simple manner. It also touches upon many interesting topics in soil mechanics and modern geotechnical engineering practice such as geotechnical earthquake engineering, principals in foundation design, slope stability analysis, modeling in geomechanics, offshore geotechnics, and geotechnical engineering perspective in the preservation of historical buildings and archeological sites. A total of seven chapters are included in the book.

This paper presents the results of our investigation to evaluate the effectiveness of different foundation modeling techniques used in soil-structure interaction analyses. The study involved analysis of three different modeling techniques applied to two different foundation configurations (one with a circular and one with a square shape). The results of dynamic response of a typical nuclear power plant structure supported on such foundations are presented.

This book provides simple physical models to represent the unbounded soil in time and frequency domain analysis. They do not supplant the more generally applicable rigorous methods, but rather supplement them. The physical models used consists of the following representations: cones based one-dimensional rod theory; lumped-parameter models with frequency-independent springs, dashpots, and masses; and prescribed wave patterns in the horizontal plane. The physical models thus offer a strength-of-materials approach to foundation dynamics.
