Large Scale Seismic Experiment at Hualien site to research and assesses current SSI analytical methods

Objective:

To blind predict seismic response of a reinforced concrete structure allowing for Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) effects, using various SSI codes.

Solution:

This research project involved blind prediction of seismic response of a ΒΌ scale containment structure in order to validate various Soil Structure interaction (SSI) analyses techniques. ENOVA personnel participated in this EPRI funded research program performing SSI analysis using SASSI software. This work has resulted in validation of SASSI.
