Abstract:The purpose of this study is to propose a simple and accurate numerical method to analyze the dynamic response of structure-water-ground interaction systems in the time domain. For this purpose, a frequency independent semi-infinite element is newly proposed to model the part of the water system away from the structure. This method is not only suitable for describing the behavior of unbounded water systems, but also for significantly decreasing the number of finite elements. Examples given in this study indica… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
