Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We have proposed a simple evaluation technique for environmental vibration based on soil-structure interaction. In this article, this technique was extended to cover an embedded foundation by applying averaging method with extrapolated displacements at Gauss points in depth. The method was verified by axisymmetric FEM simulation and applicability was depicted with real traffic acceleration data.
