Effects of Adjacent Ground Treatment on Site Seismic Response


Article Preview

The effect of adjacent soil improvement on ground motion is studied using finite element method, when seismic wave is introduced from the single layer on bedrock. The influence of ground motion on soil reinforcement is analyzed; the impacts of the reinforcement zone width, depth, elastic modulus, and the soil improvement interval on response of the ground motion are also investigated. Study shows: for the same site, when the distance between two adjacent foundation consolidation interval is less than 3 to 4 times the width of the reinforcement area, the interaction acceleration response amplitude of various points on the surface of the two adjacent reinforcement area increased significantly than the single block; within the interval , increasing one of the two adjacent foundation’s width, depth, and the other foundation surface, the horizontal acceleration response will Subsequently enlarged; when the interval between the reinforcement area is greater than the range, this effect is negligible.
