Soil-structure interaction effects of simple structures supported on rectangular foundations
This thesis deals with the effects of soil-structure interaction, both kinematic and inertial, on the responses of seismically excited rectangular foundations and simple structures supported on such foundations. The ground ...
Aspects of constitutive modeling of soils
Constitutive models in soil mechanics are used to determine theoretical solutions to a host of geotechnical engineering problems such as pile-soil interaction, pile installation, short and long term stability, consolidation ...
Performance of reinforced concrete flat-slab buildings during Loma Prieta Earthquake
This study is concerned with the performance of reinforced concrete flat-slab buildings during the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Three flat-slab buildings ranging from six to twenty-four stories were selected for investigation. ...
Dynamic response of liquid storage tanks subjected to coherent and incoherent ground motions
A comprehensive study of the response of liquid storage tanks subjected to ground induced lateral excitations is presented. Wall flexibility affects the response coefficients of tall tanks significantly. In general, response ...
