Foundation Vibrations

  • George Gazetas
Chapter

Abstract

When subjected to dynamic loads, foundations oscillate in a way that depends on the nature and deformability of the supporting ground, the geometry and inertia of the foundation and superstructure, and the nature of the dynamic excitation. Such an excitation may be in the form of support motion due to waves arriving through the ground during an earthquake, an adjacent explosion, or the passage of a train; or it may result from the dynamic forces imposed directly or indirectly on the foundation from operating machines, ocean waves, and vehicles moving on the top of the structure.
