A SIMPLIFIED SOIL STRUCTURE INTERACTION MODEL TO INVESTIGATE THE RESPONSE OF BURIED SILOS AND CYLINDERS

This paper presents a summary of an approximate soil- structure interaction model applicable to the problem of buried flexible circular tunnels and silos, subjected to air blast induced ground shock. Comparisons of the theory with some experimental results are presented. More complete experimental results have recently been obtained and are currently in the process of being analyzed. Application of the theory to several problems of interest is made, and particular design information evolved from the analysis is indicated.
