George Housner's old [1963] paper, "The Behavior of Inverted Pendulum Structures During Earthquakes" may be helpful.  It was published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, Vol. 53, No. 2, February 1963.  It provides an means of seismic analysis for rocking blocks, but it does not provide a way of including the multiple hinges between containers that you need to deal with.
