Blind predictions of Turkey Flat ground motions are carried out using a series of nonlinear ground response analysis codes. The prediction exercise is structured in two phases so as to formally consider several sources of uncertainty. The first phase involves analysis of the site response considering various sources of material variability and model variability. Specifically, these analyses utilized five different nonlinear analysis codes, each exercised with a suite of small strain shear wave…

Practical implementation of analysis routines for nonlinear seismic ground response analysis

One-dimensional seismic ground response analyses are often performed using equivalent-linear procedures, which require few, generally well-known parameters (shear wave velocity, modulus reduction and

Computational Model for Cyclic Mobility and Associated Shear Deformation

In saturated clean medium-to-dense cohesionless soils, liquefaction-induced shear deformation is observed to accumulate in a cycle-by-cycle pattern (cyclic mobility). Much of the shear strain
