Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering
The seismic response of shallow foundations on liquefiable sand is studied herein through fully coupled effective stress analyses. The numerical methodology that is used, is based on a bounding surface model for non-cohesive soils implemented into the Finite Difference code FLAC2D. Model constants are calibrated against element laboratory tests on Nevada sand, while the simulation of centrifuge model tests of the VELACS project validates the User-Defined Model's performance on boundary valuedoi:10.1201/9781439833766.ch31 fatcat:zcdx2ath3bc5hojcqmrtpledsq
