Coupled Site and Soil-Structure Interaction Effects with by Tom Schanz, Roumen Iankov

By Tom Schanz, Roumen Iankov

This quantity covers papers offered at NATO ARW 983188 “Coupled web site and Soil-Structure interplay results with software to Seismic chance Mitigation”, held in Borovets, Bulgaria, from thirtieth of August to third of September 2008. the most target of the workshop used to be to give a state-of-the-art on site-soil-structure-interaction results, as manifested within the broader region of South and South-Eastern Europe, that's absolutely the main seismically-prone quarter of the ecu continent. A moment goal used to be to aim a definition of the seismic chance posed to the equipped atmosphere during this region and to offer glossy tools for seismic chance mitigation. Papers incorporated during this quantity are grouped into 4 chapters: (1) web site stipulations and their function in seismic chance analyses; (2) Soil-structure-interaction; (3) The function of website results and of soil-structure-interaction in layout of constructions; and (4) basic and similar matters. the next topic fields are addressed: seismological points (near-field results, seismic wave propagation, free-field motions); geotechnical engineering (slopes, foundations, lifelines, dams, conserving walls); structural engineering (buildings, bridges, box measurements, protecting systems).
