Preface to Earthquake Geotechnical PDF
Performance-Based Design (PBD) is increasingly employed recently in structural design of buildings and infrastructural facilities in many countries.
However, PBD has not yet been established sufficiently in geotechnical engineering practice.
Seismically induced ground deformation essential to performance design is not easy to evaluate mainly because, in contrast to superstructures.
The ground is a 3-dimensional continuum with tremendous spatial variability and its stress-strain relationship is strongly nonlinear with dilatancy effect.
A rapid development and establishment of practical and reliable PBD is thus needed not only for foundation design but also for superstructures resting on incompetent soils.
It is particularly true under circumstances where seismic ground motions observed during recent destructive earthquakes are getting larger.
Such large motions often lead to intolerable results of foundation ground and superstructures resting on it, if they are designed by the conventional limit design methodologies.
