Abstract: An experimental study of the dynamic behavior of surface foundations on granular soils by centrifuge modeling is presented. The test method allows a direct measurement of the complex-valued dynamic response function for the foundation. An assessment of the applicability of existing theories to the practical problem is given in regard to some primary aspects.
