  3. 3. SOIL STRUCTURE INTERACTION (SSI): Definition: The process in which the response of the soil influences the motion of the structure and the motion of the structure influences the response of the soil is termed as SSI. In this case neither the structural displacements nor the ground displacements are independent from each other.  Traditional Structural Engineering methods disregard SSI effects, which is acceptable only for Light structures on relatively stiff soil (low rise structures and simple rigid retaining walls).  SSI effects become prominent and must be regarded for structures where P-δ effects play a significant role,structures with massive or deep seated foundations,slender tall structures and structures supported on a very soft soils with average shear velocity less than 100 m/s.[Euro Code 8].  Modern Seismic Design Codes such as Standard Specifications for Concrete Structures: Seismic Performance Verification JSCE 2005 (Japan Society of Civil Engineers) highlight that the response analysis should take into account the whole structural system ( superstructure + foundation + soil ).29/02/2012 3
  4. 4.  SSI Effects  Alter the Natural Frequency of the Structure :  Considering soil-structure interaction makes a structure more flexible and thus increases the natural period of the structure as compared to the corresponding rigidly supported structure.  Add Damping :  Considering the SSI effect increases the effective damping ratio of the system ( Superstructure + Foundation + Soil ).  Based on these assumptions, SSI reduces the dynamic response of the structure and improves the safety margins.  With this assumption, it has traditionally been considered that SSI can conveniently be neglected for conservative design. In addition, neglecting SSI tremendously reduces the complication in the analysis of the structures.  This conservative simplification is valid for certain classes of structures and soil conditions, such as light structures in relatively stiff soil.  However SSI can have a detrimental effect on the structural response, and neglecting SSI in the analysis may lead to unsafe design for both the superstructure and the foundation .29/02/2012 4
  5. 5. Detrimental effects of SSI Mylonakis,G and Gazetas,G. (2000a):  An Increase in the natural period of a structure due to SSI is not always beneficial as suggested by the simplified design spectrums. Example :  Soft Soil Sediments can significantly elongate the period of seismic waves. The increase in the natural period of a structure (due to SSI) may lead to resonance with this long period ground vibration.  The ductility demand can increase significantly with the increase in the natural period of the structure due to SSI effect. The permanent deformation and failure of soil may further aggravate the seismic response of the structure.29/02/2012 5
  6. 6.  SSI – Problem Definition  Soil-structure interaction can be broadly divided into two phenomena: A. Kinematic interaction. B. Inertial interaction. Examples: - An Embedded Foundation into soil does not follow the free field motion ( Earthquake ground motion causes soil displacement known as free-filed motion), this instability of the foundation to match the free field motion causes the kinematic interaction. - The mass of the super-structure transmits the inertial force to the soil causing further deformation in the soil, which is termed as inertial interaction .  At low level of ground shaking, kinematic effect is more dominant causing the lengthening of period and increase in radiation damping(dissipation of energy behaves like a damper for the structure even if the soil is considered as elastic medium without material damping) .  With the onset of stronger shaking, near-field soil modulus degradation and soil- pile gapping limit radiation damping, and inertial interaction becomes predominant, causing excessive displacements and bending strains concentrated near the ground surface, resulting in pile damage near the ground level .29/02/2012 6

  8. 8. FOUNDATIONS VIBRATIONS  OBJECTIVE :  Calculation of the vibrations of the massive foundations of heavy machines i.e. evaluate the movements of the foundation under the action of external loads.  consequently anticipate the displacements of the machine taking into account the characteristics of the foundation and the properties of the soil.  the analyses of dynamic soil-structure interaction have also been long used for seismic calculations. Whereas in the first case the machine (or the rail or road traffic) is the source of the vibrations, in the second case the soil is the source .29/02/2012 8
  9. 9.  GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF IMPEDANCE FUNCTIONS  Impedance functions (Dynamic Stiffness): The Dynamic Stiffness K is : K u(t) = P(t) P(t) : Harmonic external force (or moment). u(t) : Harmonic response (rotation, displacement)  P(t) and u(t) are not in phase therefore K is a Complex expression.  K is the dynamic Stiffness (Impedance) consists of the two Impedances: the Super-Structure , Foundation and the Soil : K1 =Superstructures, Foundation. K2 = Soil (Subgrade).  The major difference between both is that the superstructure has finite dimensions ( Mass can be calculated ),the sub-grade extends to infinity and the impedance of the sub-grade is defined for the interface between the structure and the soil (Mass-less structure-foundation interface) .29/02/2012 9
  10. 10.  SDOF with mass(Sup-structure & Foundation ):  M ü +C ù +K u = P(t)  K1 = KR + iKI = [(K –Mω2)] +iC ω  KSTR = - Mω2  KFDN = K +iC ω.29/02/2012 10

  12. 12.  Mass-less SDOF system (SOIL):  K2 = K+ iC ω .  KR = K .  KI = C ω.  It is important to note that Impedance functions for the soil are always derived from the massless foundation model.  K2 : can be obtained by setting M=0 in K1.  The impedance function of the soil is equal to Foundation impedance component for SDOF system with mass [ KFDN ].29/02/2012 12

  17. 17.  Vibrations of the mass foundations of heavy machines  The footing must have two planes of symmetry which are vertical and orthogonal.  The coordinate system x, y, z coincides with these planes.  DOF are:  Vertical displacement along z axis (index “v”).  Two horizontal displacements (Sliding) along x axis and along the y axis ( hx and hy ) respectively.  Rotation (Torsion) around the vertical z-axis (index “ t ”).  Two rotations (rocking) around the horizontal x axis and y axis (index “rx” and “ry” ) respectively.29/02/2012 17
  18. 18. In the case of footings presenting two vertical planes of symmetry the vertical displacementsand torsion movements are uncoupled, whereas the horizontal displacements along x(respectively -y) and the rocking movements about y-axis (respectively-x) are coupled.  General Notations for 3-D Footing:  Mass of Foundation (M).  Moment of inertia and  , Applied Forces at C.O.G in directions (x),(z).  , Applied moments at C.O.G in directions (y),(z).  , Displacements of C.O.G along (x) and (z) axes.  , Rotations about (y) and (z) axes.  , The reactions of displacements at the soil -footing interface in directions (x), (z).29/02/2012 18

  25. 25. Step One :  Dimensionless Circular frequency is given by the following equation: = (2*PI*16.71*1)/[SQR(45000/2)] = 0.7  Comments: - In 2D structures only three DOF are considered: 1- Vertical displacement along Z-axis. 2- Horizontal displacement along X- axis. 3- Rotation around horizontal Y- axis.  For our example, we do not have vertical Oscillation of the center of gravity, therefore the following Displacement functions developed by HUH (1986) [ for strip foundation without embedment resting on horizontal layer, , , H/B=2 ] will not include the vertical displacement functions.  For foundations that are not embedded, the rotation around Y-axis and the translation along X-axis are uncoupled. In General Cases these two modes are always coupled.29/02/2012 25
