Computer Simulation of the Shaking Table Tests on Harder Soil-Structure Interaction System
Shaking table test on soil-structure interaction system in harder site condition is presented briefly in this paper. Three-dimensional finite element analysis on shaking table test is carried out using ANSYS program. The surface-to-surface contact element is taken into consideration for the nonlinearity of the state of the interface of the soil-pile and an equivalent linear model is used for soil behavior. By comparing the results of the finite element analysis with the data from shaking table tests, the computational model is validated. Based on the calculation results, the paper gives the seismic responses under the consideration of soil-structure interaction in harder site condition, including acceleration response, contact analysis on soil pile interface and so on.
