Chapter 7. Dynamic Soil-Structure Interaction

In Section 1.3 the main aspects of taking soil-structure interaction into consideration are discussed qualitatively. It is the goal of this chapter to investigate quantitatively how the response of a structure on flexible soil differs from that of the same structure on rigid rock. The simplest possible structure that can be modeled as a one-degree-of-freedom system is used. The examination is restricted to the inertial-interaction analysis, to the influence of the increased flexibility of the total dynamic system introduced through the presence of the soil (including the effect of the rocking motion) and of the larger effective damping, arising from radiation of energy, if applicable. The effect of ...
