The seismic behavior of structures is dictated by their support conditions that are directly related to the foundations and the type of soil. The conditions of support depend on soil profile and the geo-mechanical properties of the soil layers. In seismic zones, foundation soils behave differently in comparison with soils in regions of low seismicity. In strong seismicity zones, soil behavior is important for predicting the seismic response of a structure. The aim of this course is to introduce the types of soils vulnerable to earthquakes, parameters that play an important role in predicting their seismic response and to show their impact on the dynamic behavior of structures.
