SEISMIC LATERAL PRESSURES IN SOILS WITH COHESION

This paper presents a full-range, elastic-plastic solution for seismic stresses in the free field. Based on Mohr-Coulomb strength criterion, a generalization is possible for dynamic fluidization of material with cohesion. The effect of uniform surface tractions are included as are both constant vertical and horizontal acceleration components. Also, the basic equations accommodate the active and passive cases where the lateral boundaries deform in a similar fashion but move less or more in magnitude than the free field dictates. Various uses of the equations are presented as are indications about seismic displacement and the effects on structural design.
