Dynamics of Foundations

  • J. Dominguez
  • R. Abascal
Part of the Topics in Boundary Element Research book series (TBOU, volume 4)


Dynamics of foundations is part of the more general field dynamic soil-structure interaction, which is concerned with the study of structures based on flexible soils and subjected to dynamic actions that may be directly applied to the structure or transmited through the soil.
