Modelling of Material and Geometrical Nonlinearities of Footing by a New Non-Linear Macro-Element
This paper focused on the development of a new non-linear macro-element for the modelling of soil-foundation interaction. Material and geometrical nonlinearities were taken into account in the present macro-element to examine the response of shallow foundations under monotonic and cyclic loads. An application of soil-foundation systems was studied. The results obtained from this application were in very favorable agreement with those obtained through other numerical models in the literature.
