Database regarding the article: "An accessible approach for the site response analysis of quasi horizontal layered deposits"
Carolina Volpini & John Douglas,
It is organized in this way: there are 8 input files. These files are intended to be used Abaqus
In particular, as we analyze 4 different geometries (2°, 3°, 4°, 5° of sloping angle),
we consider two files per angle.
Each of the two files presents a different mesh. We consider a dense mesh discretization
for the geometries with the first layer having:
- 400 m/s;
The name of the file is: postc_xdegrees_200_1000_buffer.inp
whereas a coarse mesh for the geometries with the first layer having:
- 500 m/s;
- 600 m/s;
- 700 m/s;
The name of the file is: postc_xdegrees_600_1000_buffer.inp
output: Considering the ouput files, we selected 7 control points on the surface of the models.
The Control points are
- MAIN MODEL: (starting from the left) 0m, 250m, 500m, 750m, 1000m
- BUFFER ZONE: half of the buffer zone
The files are named : xdeg_x00_1000_xm.txt (for the main model)
xdeg_x00_1000_bufferx.txt (for the buffer zone)
There is also a file called: bedrock.txt, which is the time history we have chosen as the input motion for all the analyses.
