Abstract

This paper deals with the dynamic response of a representative nuclear structure supported on the underlying bedrock and embedded in soil/rock layers. The results of this study indicate that soil and rock embedment can increase or decrease the floor accelerations, but the floor accelerations depend on the structural configuration, stiffness of the embedding and founding material and depth of soil and rock embedment.
