Unformatted text preview: Soil Dynamics Lecture 09 The Behavior of Surface Soil Layers under Earthquake Loading The vibration of the surface layer due to an earthquake ensues from the upward propagation of the shear waves from below. The behavior of the surface stratum was studied and reported by Idriss and Seed in 1968. The discussion of this topic in this lecture, follows their analysis. Consider the following surface layer of soil, (rock) S-wave input displacement of the soil layer due to the seismic input Case 1. A single top soil layer sitting upon a rock base. Let us consider the behavior of a column of soil of unit area, sitting upon a rock base. The equation of motion of the soil at any depth y and at any time t is, ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) 2 2 2 2 where is the relative displacement at a depth and a time , is the shear modulus at any depth , is the damping coefficient at any depth , and is the density of the soil at any dep g u u u u y c y G y y t t y y t u y t G( y ) y c( y ) y ( y ) + = th . The shear modulus increases with depth as, where A and B are soil properties.
