Abstract

This paper describes a series of shaking table test of a large slope model subjected to vertical and horizontal seismic loading. The slope model was constructed using mixed material with silica sand and bentonite clay. A number of accelerometers and displacement transducers were set to measure the response characteristics of the slope model. Input waves used in the shaking table tests were sinusoidal and observed waves recorded near an actual nuclear power plant. The test results clearly show that a critical direction of the vertical and horizontal accelerations exists, which is a factor to decrease the slope stability.
