HORIZONTAL IMPEDANCE OF EMBEDDED STRIP FOUNDATIONS IN LAYERED SOIL

The influence of key mechanical and geometrical parameters on the dynamic horizontal stiffness of rigid strip foundations embedded in layered soil was investigated. Geometrical parameters were investigated, including the depth of embedment, thickness of the top soil layer, and the height of contact foundation sidewalls with surrounding backfill soil. Investigation was also made of the influence of the relative shear wave velocities of the layers for a two-layered soil profile. Graphs are used to present the results. The details of the investigation are described.
