Dynamic soil pressures on embedded walls
A comprehensive study is made of the response to horizontal base shaking of a uniform viscoelastic soil stratum retained by two vertical rigid walls. The system is assumed to experience a space-invariant horizontal motion ...
Nonlinear seismic response of dams using a coupled boundary element - finite element formulation
A study of the effects of dam-foundation interaction on the response of earth, rockfill and concrete-faced rockfill dams to obliquely incident P, SV and Rayleigh waves is presented. Emphasis is placed on the effects of the ...
