Foundation stiffness plays a crucial role in the stability analysis of structures to incorporate the Soil Structure Interaction (SSI) effects. Current design approaches of estimating foundation stiffness include advanced dynamic finite element, distributed spring approach, and lumped spring approach. The aim of this paper is to overview the different methods for computing the foundation stiffness and to check their applicability. This has been done by considering an example: Saraighat Bridge… CONTINUE READING
