COMPARISON OF DYNAMIC ANALYSES FOR SATURATED SANDS

A number of different methods are now available for the analysis of the dynamic response of saturated cohesionless soils to earthquake loading. The methods differ in the simplifying assumptions that are made, in the representation of the stress-strain relations of soils, in the manner in which the development of pore-water pressure is taken into account and in the methods used to integrate the equations of motion. Three methods, used in engineering practice, are applied to the same idealized site profile to determine how their predictions compare and to assess their range of applicability and to clarify the characteristics of each method. /Author/
