dc.description.abstractThe research described in this dissertation undertakes a computational study of wave motion due to ground excitation in layered soil media. Adjustments of soil properties consistent with the level of deformation is applied using an equivalent linear approach. The finite element method provides the basis of the numerical procedure for soil-structure system response calculation in conjunction with a first-order perturbation scheme. Available experimental data are employed for shear-modulus and damping adjustments. The findings of the research are expected to lead to efficient calculation of structural response to earthquake ground motion.en
