Permanent Displacement Response Spectra

Index Back to home page About these web pages Conclusions Slope strength Motion studies Field parameters Compliance Abstract Conclusion
Permanent seismic displacement of soil slopes is dramatically influenced by the interaction of earthquake motions and the resonance characteristics of the sliding mass. Permanent Displacement Response Spectra (PDRS) can identify the earthquake motions scenarios that will amplify or deamplify permanent displacements.
