Fault Rupture Propagation through Sand: Finite-Element Analysis and Validation through Centrifuge Experiments
The three notorious earthquakes of 1999 in Turkey (Kocaeli and Duzce) and Taiwan (Chi-Chi), having offered numerous examples of surface fault rupturing underneath civil engineering structures,Expand

Nonlinear rocking stiffness of foundations
Abstract The response of surface foundations to large overturning moments is studied under undrained conditions. Rigid circular, strip, and rectangular footings of various aspect ratios areExpand

Soil failure can be used for seismic protection of structures
A new seismic design philosophy is illuminated, taking advantage of soil “failure” to protect the superstructure. Instead of over-designing the foundation to ensure that the loading stemming from theExpand

Slope Stabilizing Piles and Pile-Groups: Parametric Study and Design Insights
This paper uses a hybrid method for analysis and design of slope stabilizing piles that was developed in a preceding paper by the writers. The aim of this paper is to derive insights about theExpand

Shaking table testing of multidrum columns and portals
SUMMARY A common type of ancient monuments around the Mediterranean is the ancient Greek temple. Unfortunately, very few remain intact; most of them surviving in the form of free-standing multidrumExpand

Nonlinear Response of Deep Immersed Tunnel to Strong Seismic Shaking
Critical for the seismic safety of immersed tunnels is the magnitude of deformations developing in the segment joints, as a result of the combined longitudinal and lateral vibrations. Analysis andExpand

Seismic Behavior of Batter Piles: Elastic Response
Several aspects of the seismic response of groups containing nonvertical piles are studied, including the lateral pile-head stiffnesses, the "kinematic" pile deformation, and the "inertial"Expand

Simplified Constitutive Model for Simulation of Cyclic Response of Shallow Foundations: Validation against Laboratory Tests
The nonlinear response of shallow foundations has been studied experimentally and analytically. However, the engineering community is not yet convinced of the applicability of such concepts inExpand

Seismic behaviour of flexible retaining systems subjected to short-duration moderately strong excitation
Using finite-element modelling, this paper explores the magnitude and distribution of dynamic earth pressures on several types of flexible retaining systems: L-shaped reinforced-concrete walls, piledExpand

Seismic performance of bar-mat reinforced-soil retaining wall: Shaking table testing versus numerical analysis with modified kinematic hardening constitutive model
Reinforced-soil retaining structures possess inherent flexibility, and are believed to be insensitive to earthquake shaking. In fact, several such structures have successfully survived destructiveExpand
