Earthquake resistant design of foundations

Abstract

This paper reviews the main issues to be addressed in the design of shallow and deep foundations which may be subject to earthquake loading. Information is presented on the soil properties required as well as the various design analysis techniques with a view to assessing the current state-of-the-art and highlighting areas in which further techniques need to be developed. The paper sets out, by way of an overview, a sequence of steps that a designer may follow in developing a foundation system. It is concluded that, at present, the greatest deficiencies lie in the areas of most potential use to designers. A secondary aim of the paper is to enhance communication between geotechnical and structural engineers on aseismic foundation design.
