Dynamic soil-foundation interaction in ocean environment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A thin layer element method is formulated for Biot's equation describing the dynamic behavior of fluid-filled elasto-porous medium. Using the formulation, the dynamic response of a foundation deeply embedded in the seafloor is analyzed. The ocean environment is characterized by the fluid above and inside the seafloor sediments and its effects on the dynamic response of the foundation are examined. It is found that the ocean environment can considerably affect the dynamic response of the sediment deposits and foundation.
