Doria 6, 95125 Catania, Italy Soil-Structure interplay is a difficult multidisciplinary topic which covers numerous components of Civil Engineering. almost each building is attached to the floor and the interplay among the artefact and the root medium might have an effect on significantly either the superstructure and the basis soil. The Soil-Structure interplay challenge has turn into a massive characteristic of Structural Engineering with the arrival of huge structures on smooth soils resembling nuclear strength vegetation, concrete and earth dams. structures, bridges, tunnels and underground buildings can also require specific cognizance to take delivery of to the issues of Soil-Structure interplay. Dynamic Soil-Structure interplay is favourite in Earthquake Engineering difficulties. The complexity of the matter, due additionally to its multidisciplinary nature and to the very fact of getting to think about bounded and unbounded media of other mechanical features, calls for a numerical therapy for any software of engineering value. The Boundary point procedure seems to be well matched to resolve difficulties of Soil- constitution interplay via its skill to discretize purely the bounds of advanced and infrequently unbounded geometries. Non-linear difficulties which frequently come up in Soil-Structure interplay can also be taken care of advantageously through a sensible mixture of Boundary and Finite aspect discretizations.

The tractions are obtained by differentiation of those displacements. 30 J. DOMINGUEZ The analysis of the response of foundations to incoming waves taking into account the interaction between the soil and the footing is a problem of diffraction of elastic waves. This kind of problem for inclusions and cavities has been treated by numerous authors since the early 1970' s. Most of the existing exact solutions correspond to 2-D antiplane models (Wong and Trifunac, 1974; Sanchez-Sesma and Rosenblueth 1979).
When the system is under the effects of vertical SV-waves producing upstream motion, the free field motion is the same as in the empty reservoir situation at both sides of the dam. The BE equations for the foundation are written for the scattered field as above. The water region is closed by a vertical boundary at a distance from the dam equal to 12 H. The use of this relation implies that the behaviour of the water channel outside the discretized zone is approximated by the behaviour of a rigid bottom channel of the same depth.
Thus, some care should be exercised in comparing the results in Figures 35 (a and b) with those of Fenves and Chopra (half-space). The condition involves the so-called "wave reflection coefficient" which can be calculated from the properties of the materials that constitute the bottom of the reservoir. 71. The response to vertical ground motion for at low frequencies, is in good agreement with the present Boundary Element results. The differences at high frequencies are apparently due to the coarse meshes of Finite Elements employed for the dam in both of the earlier studies.
