Abstract

Current codes and seismic provisions recognize the important role that soil - structure interaction (SSI) can play on the seismic response of building structures. However, with the exception of the NEHRP provisions, most codes do not include a structured procedure that provides sufficient detailed information to account for SSI in analysis and design. This study presents a methodology that can be incorporated in either Eurocode 8 or the New Greek Seismic Code (NEAK) for the design of building structures including the effects of SSI. The eleven - step procedure can be applied to either regular or irregular buildings using either a pseudo-dynamic- equivalent static procedure or response spectrum analysis. In order to demonst
