Title: Soil Structure Interaction under Semi Static Loads in an Integral Abutment Bridge
Author(s): Miguel Muñoz
Publication: Web Session
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:This special session will emphasize the design and performance of concrete bridges and buildings with consideration for interaction with soils and foundations, including deep or shallow foundations. Given soil structure interaction as being a critical factor in the design of most buildings and bridges, a technical forum is needed to exchange current knowledge and develop research needs. Presentations will encompass a wide variety of technical issues such as the effect of differential settlement on the behavior of structures, backfills for bridge abutment, and earthquake-induced responses of structures. Both experimental and analytical investigations are of interest. The session brings to light recent research findings and provides an opportunity to discuss present challenges and technical issues. Critical information is provided to those who lead tomorrow’s structural design and construction in conjunction with soils and foundations, including practicing engineers, government officials, and academics.
