Prediction of Settlements of Soft Clay Caused by Earthquakes
Zhou Jian et al.
This paper presents an analytical method for calculation of the earthquake-induced settlemint of foundation by using Biots type consolidation eguation. In order to investigate the effctiveness of the proposed method, a comparison, of the numerical result with obseved earthquake?induced settlement on the site at Sendai in Japan caused by the Miyagioki earthquake in 1987 are carried out, which shows both of them coincide closely to each other.
