Soil Structure Interaction
Subject: Architecture | Topics:

Typical structural design procedures neglect the Soil Structure Interaction (ssi) effects. Neglecting SSI is reasonable for light-weight structures in reasonably stiff soil like low rise structures and simple inflexible retaining walls. The issue of Soil Composition Interaction, becomes prominent intended for heavy structures regenerating on relatively soft soils one example is nuclear power plants, high-rise buildings in addition to elevated-highways on soft soil.
