Abstract

Seismic design of buried pipelines for liquefaction-induced large ground displacement S. Takada% T. Suzuki^ T. Koike^, J. Ueno\ Y. OgawaN. Oguchi*, T. Kitano , M.

Two different patterns of ground deformations at slope and revetment are selected as the typical lateral spreading modes. The shell/beam hybrid model is used to analyse the inelastic behavior of buried pipes, using the FEM code of ABAQUS. For the practical formulation conforming to those FEM results, the plastic limit analysis method is adopted to deal with the plastic behaviors of pipeline systems. Finally, a simplified design formula is deduced to eval
