Permanent Displacement Response Spectra
|Compliant dynamic displacement analysis versus traditional rigid block (Newmark) analysis
||Traditional (Newmark-type) analysis of soil displacement assumes a rigid mass shearing at its base in response to 1-D dipslope earthquake motion. Kramer & Smith (1997) extended the 1-D Newmark approach by making the mass compliant. Our model incorporates compliance and multidirectional components of earthquake motion, and block resonant motions.
