Shear Wave Velocity and Soil Properties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Building Codes now relate soil properties to shear wave velocities. 

 

For Examples, 2006 IBC Section 1613.5.5 for site classification, FEMA 356 Section 4.4.2.1 for stiffness parameters, ATC 40 Section 10.5 for Characterization of Site Soils.

 

What soils text is a good source for understanding these relationships?

 

I’m interested, in particular, in knowing how to develop elasto-plastic soil spring properties for a dynamic analysis that includes soil properties.
