Chapter 2. Foundation on Surface of Homogeneous Soil Halfspace

The truncated semi-infinite cone model for translation was introduced more than half a century ago [E1], the cone model for rotation considerably later [M2] with an application of the latter contained in Veletsos and Nair [V4]. To elucidate the important phenomenon of radiation damping in two and three dimensions, wedges and cones can be used [G1]. This chapter closely follows several studies [M5, M7, M5, and W15].

In Section 2.1 the concept and the construction of cones to model a foundation on a homogeneous soil half space are discussed. The properties of the cones corresponding to the various degrees of freedom of a rigid surface disk are examined, in particular the appropriate propagation ...
