Document Type: Journal Paper


The purpose of this technical note is to investigate the sensitivity of computation of the equivalent-linear analysis to the choice of the stress-strain input and to demonstrate the need for care in selecting the correct set of properties. The computer program used in this study is SHAKE and the stress-strain relations considered are the S&I and the H& D relations. Soil types considered in this study are restricted to clays.

Subject Headings: Stress strain relations | Stress analysis | Sensitivity analysis | Soil analysis | Computer software | Soil classification | Soil stress | Clays
