<p>Cyclic1D is a nonlinear Finite Element program for one-dimensional (1D) lateral dynamic site-response simulations. The program operates in the time domain, allowing for linear (Hughes 1987) and nonlinear studies. Nonlinearity is simulated by incremental ...
<p>Soil-structure interaction may play a major role in the seismic response of a bridge structure. Specifically, soil layers of low stiffness and strength may result in permanent displacement of the abutments and foundations, thus imposing important kinematic ...

<p>A shake-table series of experiments has provided valuable data for liquefaction-induced lateral spreading effects on pile foundations. In this paper, this data is employed to estimate peak soil pressure on single piles embedded in a laterally spreading ...

<p>In this paper a multi-surface plasticity model for cohesionless granular materials is developed, in which theLade-Duncan failure criterion is employed as the yield function.</p>

In order to satisfactorily reproduce the Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) effects under earthquake loading, it is often necessary to model a large domain of the soil surrounding the structure of interest. High spatial/temporal resolution is another challenge ...

<p>This paper presents the application of the PEER (Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research) PBEE (Performance-based earthquake engineering) methodology to one of the six PEER testbeds, namely the Humboldt Bay Middle Channel (HBMC) Bridge, one of three bridges ...

A mechanism of sand boil development during liquefaction is briefly discussed. In particular, the impact of sand boils as potential excess pore-pressure relief mechanisms is investigated within a computational solid-fluid fully coupled effective-stress framework. ...
