Centrifuge modeling of load-deformation behavior of rocking shallow foundations
Abstract Shallow foundations supporting building structures might be loaded well into their nonlinear range during intense earthquake loading. The nonlinearity of the soil may act as an energyExpand

Geotechnical reconnaissance of the 2010 Darfield (Canterbury) earthquake
On 4 September 2010, a magnitude M w 7.1 earthquake struck the Canterbury region on the South Island of New Zealand. The epicentre of the earthquake was located in the Darfield area about 40 kmExpand

Performance evaluation of a nonlinear Winkler-based shallow foundation model using centrifuge test results
When a structure supported on shallow foundations is subjected to inertial loading due to earthquake motions, the foundation may undergo sliding, settling and rocking movements. Even if the capacityExpand

Beam-on-Nonlinear-Winkler-Foundation Modeling of Shallow, Rocking-Dominated Footings
The nonlinear behavior of shallow foundations under large amplitude earthquake-induced loading can result in dissipation of seismic energy through the mechanism of soil yielding beneath theExpand
