SUMMARY Experience has shown that soil-structure interaction can play an important role on structural behaviour during earthquakes. A complete soil-structure interaction analysis consists of two parts: a site response analysis for free field motions and an interaction analysis for structural response. In the present study the effects of soil-structure interaction are evaluated on a two-storey concrete building about 10 m high with a rectangular horizontal section of about 11m x 28 m. The building, of public interest, is equipped with several accelerometers. The structure and the foundation system were idealised by a 3-D finite elements model, while the underlying soil is represented by a semi-infinite visco-elastic 1-D model. The soil-structure interaction analysis was performed by using the substructuring method implemented by the SASSI2000 numerical code. The accelerograms recorded during a low magnitude earthquake (ML = 4) by a free field seismic station, about 5m away from the building, were adopted as the seismic input motion. In this paper the results of the numerical analyses obtained in some significant nodes of the structure are presented both in time and frequency domain, and compared with the seismic recordings; moreover the influence of the structure on the ground motion is evaluated by comparing the free field actual motion with the numerical modelling results at the boundary between the soil and the foundation.

Abstract

SUMMARY Experience has shown that soil-structure interaction can play an important role on structural behaviour during earthquakes. A complete soil-structure interaction analysis consists of two parts: a site response analysis for free field motions and an interaction analysis for structural response. In the present study the effects of soil-structure interaction are evaluated on a two-storey concrete building about 10 m high with a rectangular horizontal section of about 11m x 28 m. The building, of public interest, is equipped with several accelerometers. The structure and the foundation system were idealised by a 3-D finite elements model, while the underlying soil is represented by a semi-infinite visco-elastic 1-D model. The soil-structure interaction analysis was performed by using the substructuring method implemented by the SASSI2000 numerical code. The accelerograms recorded during a low magnitude earthquake (ML = 4) by a free field seismic station, about 5m away from the building, were adopted as the seismic input motion. In this paper the results of the numerical analyses obtained in some significant nodes of the structure are presented both in time and frequency domain, and compared with the seismic recordings; moreover the influence of the structure on the ground motion is evaluated by comparing the free field actual motion with the numerical modelling results at the boundary between the soil and the foundation.
