conference paper description
A coupled pile-soil-structure interaction (SPSI) analysis method is presented to study the liquefaction effects on lateral pile behavior of the highway bridges. Pile-soil interaction is simulated by the dynamic nonlinear p-y method including the effect of liquefaction. The liquefaction effects to the pile-soil interaction are taken into account by introducing a degradation multiplier to the p-y curve. The degradation multiplier is related to the excess pore water pressure buildup at the pile-soil interface. The SPSI analysis method is implemented into a Missouri highway bridge site near the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) rift complex for future earthquake scenarios of M 7.0. Synthetic motions at rock base were developed to the bridge foundation level for SPSI analyses. Results from analysis indicate that the degradation of p-y curve due to the excess pore water pressure significantly increases displacement of superstructure and moment of pile foundation.
