Seismic Analysis and Design of RC Lifelinesby Y. Chen, Pennsylvania State Univ, Middletown, United States,
Abstract: This paper describes the general approach for analyzing a soil-reinforced concrete lifeline system subjected to seismic loading, and the development and importance of transfer functions and design spectra. The results from the parametric studies indicate that the maximum responses are most affected by the frequency of seismic excitation. The less intensified but with longer duration earthquake motion will generally produce highest responses. Some meaningful design spectra and ductility factors are also included.
