Abstract

Dynamic responses of a vertical shaft subjected to seismic loads in a layered soilwere investigated by using a three-dimensional Finite Element(FE) approach.The emphasiswas on quantifying the load distribution and deformation of the vertical shaft under earthquake loadings in a multi-layered soil. It was found that the dynamic behavior of the vertical shaft was significantly influenced by the soil stratigraphy and input motion. Based on the FE analysis results, the maximum values of shear force and bending moment occurred near the interface between the soil layers. The deformation and loading values of vertical shaft was highly influenced by the amplitude of earthquake for the case of the vertical shaft constructed in a multi-layered soil.
