EFFECT OF FOUNDATION EMBEDMENT ON THE DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF THE FOUNDATION - SOIL SYSTEM

MODEL TESTS WERE CONDUCTED ON EIGHT MODEL FOOTINGS, FOUR OF WHICH HAD THE SAME SHAPE, EQUAL WEIGHTS, AND DIFFERENT AREAS, WHEREAS THE OTHER FOUR HAD EQUAL AREAS AND WEIGHTS BUT DIFFERENT SHAPES. THE EFFECT OF FOUNDATION EMBEDMENT ON RESONANT FREQUENCY, RESONANT AMPLITUDE, SPRING CONSTANT AND DAMPING FACTOR OF THE FOUNDATION-SOIL SYSTEM WAS STUDIED. INSTRUMENTATION AND EXPERIMENTAL DETAILS ARE EXPLAINED. THE TEST RESULTS ARE DISCUSSED AND CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN. /AUTHOR/
