Dynamic earth pressures against a retaining wall caused by Rayleigh waves.
"Engineering Structures", v. 11
An approximate procedure for studying harmonic soil-structure interaction problems is presented. The presence of Rayleigh waves is considered and the resulting governing equations of the dynamic soil-structure system are solved in the time domain. With this method the transient and steady states of a vibratory motion and also the nonlinear behaviour of the soil can be studied. As an example, the dynamic earth pressure against a rigid retaining wall is investigated. The loads are assumed to be harmonic Rayleigh
waves with both static and dynamic surface surcharges. The dependence of the results on the excitation frequency is shown.
