Abstract

This investigation examines the importance of base flexibility on the behaviour of planar shear walls subjected to lateral loading. The discrete force method is adopted, in which the base flexibility is modelled by vertical and rotational springs. The objective of the current work is to provide a theoretical treatment of foundation-structure interaction, suitable for implementation in the discrete force method. In addition, the work presents results obtained with the discrete force modelling of soil interaction, and discusses its applicability to some representative problems.
