Chapter 4. Embedded Foundation and Pile Foundation

The dynamic response of a rigid massless cylindrical foundation embedded in a homogeneous soil half space (Fig. 4-1) and in a soil layer resting on rigid or flexible rock for all motions is addressed in this chapter. A pile foundation which can be regarded as an embedded foundation with the embedded domain of large embedment height occupied by the pile is also examined. Material damping of the soil is not addressed explicitly.

The concept of cone models is extended to embedded cylindrical foundations. The building block of the procedure ...
