Unformatted text preview: the rotational KRR impedance functions. Building KHH Foundation KRR Δ Θ Sway-Rocking Model At the first step, we consider interaction system called “Inertial Interaction” where the massless rigid foundation is subjected to the total inertial force F and the total overturning moment M at the base. F : Inertia Force of Building and Foundation M : Overturning Moment Massless Rigid Foundation Soil Pile M G.L F (I) uP ug (b) Inertia Interaction (I) At the second step, we consider the interaction system called “ Kinematic Interaction” , where the massless rigid foundation is subjected to the incident earthquake wave. Massless Rigid Foundation Soil Pile G.L (F) (K) uP ug (K) Incident Earthquake Wave (c) Kinematic Interaction The dynamic behaviors of the pile group foundation and the soil are the sum of those under the inertial and the kinematic interaction. When we will require the earthquake responses of the pile group and the soil surrounding the structure, we have to analyze b...
