Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering and Soil Dynamics IV
This study presents results from one-dimensional seismic ground response analyses performed for the Silicon Valley Rapid Transit (SVRT) project. Due to the large amplitude of the design input motion, large levels of shear strain are calculated in the soil column that are highly sensitive to modeling details. Critical issues affecting the results include: (1) the use of an innovative stress-strain (backbone) curve that captures expected behavior at small strains from empirical modulus reductiondoi:10.1061/40975(318)210 fatcat:4oufotbe2regtjuow7kymlvi7e
