2 SSI – Problem Definition Earthquake Analysis Structures supported by rigid foundations Earthquakes=>Specified motion of base Rigid Base Analysis Tall Buildings Acceptable Light & Flexible Firm Foundations Methods focus on modeling of structure Displacements wrt fixed base Finite Element Methods Nuclear Power Plants Wrong Assumption Massive & Stiff Soft Soils Interaction with supporting soils becomes important

7 SSI Effects Alter the Natural Frequency of the Structure Add Damping Through the Soil Interaction Effects Traveling Wave Effects

8 Methods of Analysis Objective: Given the earthquake ground motions that would occur on the surface of the ground in the absence of the structure (control or design motions), find the dynamic response of the structure.

9 Methods of Analysis Methods IdealizedComplete DirectMultiStep

10 Complete Interaction Analysis Account for the variation of soil properties with depth. Consider the material nonlinear behavior of the soil Consider the 3-D nature of the problem Consider the nature of the wave propagation which produced the ground motion Consider possible interaction with adjacent structures. High Degree of Complexity

11 Idealized Interaction Analysis Idealization Horizontal Layers Simplified Wave Mechanisms etc

12 Idealized Interaction Analysis Preliminary description of free field motion before any structure has been built The definition of the motion itself the control motion in terms of response spectra, acceleration records etc The location of the control motion free surface, soil-rock interface The generation mechanism at the control point vertically or obliquely incident SH or SV waves, Rayleigh waves, etc.

13 Idealized Analysis Idealized Interaction Analysis Tools: FEM, BEM, FDE, Analytical solutions Direct Methods Evaluation of Dynamic Response in a Single Step MultiStep Methods Evaluation of Dynamic Response in Several Steps SUPERPOSITION Two-Step Two-Step Kinematic+Inertia Interaction Kinematic+Inertia Interaction Three-Step Three-Step Rigid Foundations Rigid Foundations Lumped Parameter Models Lumped Parameter Models Substructure Substructure Division to Subsystems Division to Subsystems Equilibrium & Compatibility Equilibrium & Compatibility True Nonlinear Solutions

15 FEM Solution Techniques Selection Criteria Cost and Feasibility Paramount Consideration Accuracy Differences - Handling of Damping - Ability to Handle High Frequency Components of Motion

16 FEM - Modal Analysis mDamping is neglected during early stages m Actual displacements are damped m Damping is considered in arbitrary manner m Structural Dynamics: First few modes need to be evaluated (<20) m SSI: Acceleration response spectra over a large frequency range and large number of modes need to be considered (>150) m Not recommended for Direct SSI - Stiff Massive Structure Soft Soil m OK for Substructure

17 FEM - Direct Integration Time Marching Schemes Newmark’s Methods, Wilson Methods, Bathe and Wilson Cubic Inertia Method Small Time Step for Accuracy Stability and Convergence Choice of Damping Matrix Frequency Dependent Damping Ratio - filters out high frequency components Proportional Damping Good Choice if True Dynamic Nonlinear Analysis is feasible
