1 Seismic Mechanical Response of rigid shallow footings Part I  Some experimental/theoretical and numerical issues: monotonic and cyclic loading Departement of Structural Engineerig
2 2 Soil structure interaction as a link between seismology and structural dynamics Between a 3D domain of infinite extension and a finite geometrical determined spatial domain (the structure) It s so difficulty managing heterogeneities and differences! Seismologists against structural engineers
3 3 Outlook of the presentation a) Introduction b) Cyclic liquefaction c) Failure mechanisms and punching d) The interaction domain e) Cyclic soilstructure interaction f) The viscoelastic approach
4 Definition of shallow foundations 4 GEOMETRIES Shallow (B/D>4) and deep foundations (B/D<4) Plinth Strip footings (deformable beam) Mat foundations Grid foundations pillars Stubby foundations the case of the medieval Ghirlandina bell tower (Modena, Italy) Retrofitting of historical building Inertial and kinematic effects
5 The seismic soilstructure interaction 5 What are the consequences? Irreversible differential settlements, damage to the structure energy dissipation 3 Dynamic structural response 4 Soil foundation interaction Δτ 2 1 site amplification Depending on topography and stratigraphy As usual it is a question of coupling: uncoupled it is easier
6 Subdivide the domain into substructures 6 Performing numerical analyses of the entire domain ( the geotechnical and the structural may be quite complex) Dynamic centrifuge tests can be also performed
7 Local site amplification: topographic factor 7 The site effect: foundations placed along natural slopes 1 Δτ Symmetric cycles? xt & () Frequency and time domain
8 Local site amplification: a coupled problem due to the nonlinear mechanical behaviour of soils 8 Liquefaction phenomena and pore pressure buildup 1 Is there any coupling?
9 Liquefaction phenomenon and undrained stable locus 9 1 Concept of static liquefaction: Relative density Drainage conditions Grain size distribution Initiial state of stress
10 1 cyclic liquefaction 10 Cycle asymmetry
11 1 11 What are the strategies necessary to numerically capture the cyclic liquefaction of the stratum? 1. Semiempirical stresspath approaches: evaluating the stress path by means of viscoelastic numerical analysis and employing empirical/ numerical methods for accounting for, at least locally, the nonlinearity of the mechanical response under undrained conditions 2. By employing onedimensional numerical code in which multimechanism simplified models are implemented (in this case the soilstructure interaction is absent) 3. Fully coupled numerical analyses (by considering the drainage and the ratcheting phenomenon)
12 1 The ratcheting phenomenon and coupling 12 q Elastoplastic/viscoplastic q Elasticresponse Shake down Case a + ε Ratcheting ε q q Case b Plastic adaptative response no ratcheting ε Progressive Stabilization ε
13 1 Cyclic fatigue 13 q q q c b a Case c In case of no coupling between the principal plastic mechanism and the third one, case a is obtained and the accumulation of irreversible strains is characterised by a constant rate ε ε& coupling c a p Under undrained conditions the process is self feeding because p progressively reduces and the stress level increases b N cycles

15 1 15 q Problem of the cone shape: Prevost model C A B p elastic zone During the unloading the progressive activation of the diffferent plastic mechanisms allows to always obtain a plastic adaptative response Owing to the chosen plastic potential a perfect close loop is always obtained and no ratcheting is simulated

22 4 The soilstructure interaction 22 Statically determinate interaction Redundantly constrained interaction Importance of differential settlements induced by cyclic loading (ratcheting DBD approaches)
23 The pseudostatic approach (ULS): the rigidplastic approach 23 4 Static equivalent horizontal load: step 2 is disregarded whereas step 4 is abruptly simplified. A design pseudostatic distribution of forces is applied to the structure, additional loads H and M are applied on the foundation and new limit conditions have to be accounted for From micro to macro In this perspective the design of the shallow foundation under inclined and eccentric loads becomes essential

41 The inertial effects at the foundation level 41 2 The interaction domain may shrink and evolve because inertial forces develop The pseudostatic approach Importance of the λ/b parameter where λ = v/f, if λ/b is small the motion cannot be assumed to be synchronous
42 The dynamic effect 42 Even the coupling between the dynamic response of the structure and of the soil could be a priori accounted for: the former can be visualized by means of a time evolution of generalised loads variables within the interaction domain, the latter by means of the shrinkage of the interaction domain itself H/M V

But are curves kөө  Ө path dependent? Are they dependent on the soil profile etc?
