Abstract: Behavior of soils is very complicated and it shows a great variation of behavior when subjected to different conditions. Various constitutive models have been proposed by several researchers to describe various aspects of soil behavior in details, and also to apply such for geotechnical engineering applications. This phenomenon is even complex during earthquake. As waves from an earthquake reach a structure, they produce motions in the structure itself. These motions depend on the structure’s vibration characteristics and the building or structural layout. To analyze any foundation for a bridge or a building in 3D is a complex problem. First, a model of the soil-strcture interaction has to be developed to determine the relationship between the soil and the substructure. Also needed in the analysis are the effects on substructure and, the nonlinear soil response. Often, the seismically induced pore water pressures also. To understand the seismic behavior of soil-structure system there are following parameters: Firstly soil response analysis based on realistic estimate of earthquake magnitude that structure will face, secondally dynamic response of super structure & effect on foundation. The soil response analysis also is able to provide information concerning the loss of strength as a result of pore water pressure building up in the saturated cohesion less layers in case of potentially liquefiable soils. In the present study Ronal B.J, Brinkgreve modeling method was also studied in detail for experimental evaluation of the models with respect to their suitability to fit experimental data from a various available tests. The final criterion should be numerical and computational evaluation of the models with respect to the facility, by which they can be implemented in computer calculations. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
