Capacity, Settlement, and Energy Dissipation of Shallow Footings Subjected to Rocking
The effectiveness of structural fuse mechanisms used to improve the performance of buildings during seismic loading depends on their capacity, ductility, energy dissipation, isolation, andExpand

Liquefaction mechanism for layered soils
Results from four centrifuge model tests are presented. Three of the model tests involve layered soil deposits subject to base shaking; one model test involves a uniform soil deposit of sand subjectExpand

Shake Table Test of Large-Scale Bridge Columns Supported on Rocking Shallow Foundations
AbstractThis paper presents the results of a series of shake table tests of two 460-mm-diameter columns supported on 1.5-meter-square shallow rocking foundations. The tests were conducted using theExpand

Effects of Moment-to-Shear Ratio on Combined Cyclic Load-Displacement Behavior of Shallow Foundations from Centrifuge Experiments
Current design guidelines for shallow foundations supporting building and bridge structures discourage footing rocking or sliding during seismic loading. Recent research indicates that footingExpand

Strength Loss and Localization at Silt Interlayers in Slopes of Liquefied Sand
The role of void redistribution in the liquefaction behavior of saturated sand slopes with and without silt interlayers was investigated using a series of dynamic centrifuge model tests. TwelveExpand

Settlement, Sliding, and Liquefaction Remediation of Layered Soil
A series of highly instrumented, large-scale centrifuge models have been tested to investigate the extent of remediation required to control settlement and lateral sliding of soil deposits at aExpand

Contact Interface Model for Shallow Foundations Subjected to Combined Cyclic Loading
It has been recognized that the ductility demands on a superstructure might be reduced by allowing rocking behavior and mobilization of the ultimate capacity of shallow foundations during seismicExpand
