Abstract

Seismic behaviour of earth structures, like soil embankments, earth dams and waste landfills, may be influenced by complicated phenomena related both to soil-structure interaction and site effects. The current study numerically investigates the main aspects of each of the aforementioned issues by taking into consideration even soil material nonlinearity. A detailed parametric investigation demonstrates the impact of the most important factors, like excitation characteristics and geometric/mechanical properties of an earth structure, on the evaluation of its dynamic response and stability. The results indicate that the impact of the examined issues on the seismic design of earth structures cannot be easily predefined or quantified, since it is dependent upon several interrelated factors.
