IMPROVING SEISMIC RESISTANCE OF HYDRAULIC STRUCTURES USING SOIL IMPROVEMENT TECHNIQUES (2012)
Most of the Egyptian irrigation structures were built many decades ago. Most of these structures may be classified as unsafe structures when making an assessment of their resistance to earthquake loads in accordance with the current specifications. This research suggests a technique to increase the ability of these structures to resist seismic loads. The suggested technique depends on using soil improvement methods to improve the most stressed soil bulb zone under the structure. The effect of seismic site soil factor will be decreased by improving this part of soil.
