Abstract

In the design of a structure, the implementation of reliable soil-foundation- structure interaction into the analysis process plays a very important role. The paper presents a determination of parameters of a suitably chosen soil- foundation model and their influence on the structure response. Since the mechanical data for the structure can be determined with satisfactory accuracy. the properties of the soil-foundation model were identified using measured dynamic response of the real structure. A simple model describing soil- foundation structure was incorporated into the classical 3-D finite element analysis of the structure with commercial software. Results obtained from the measured data on the pier were afterw
