<p>In order to understand the structural behavior, it is useful to study the effects of soil-structure interaction. But usually soil-structure interaction studies are done with the assumption that foundation is fixed to the soil. During strong earthquake motions, ...

<p>Geotechnical constructions are sophisticated structures due to the non-linear soil behavior and the complex soil-structure interaction, which entails great exigencies on the liable engineer during the design process. The process can be schematized as a ...

<p>The primary goal of this report was to develop Load and Resistance Factor Design (LRFD) methods for slopes and retaining structures. Even though there is past research on LRFD of shallow foundations and piles, there are very few publications available on ...
