Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) modeling

Post by civil.kiani »


I am going to study about the influence of Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) on the fundamental period.
I have a problem by modeling of SSI in SeismoStruct.
I know that, I should use the Link-Element but which curve I have choose?
If I want to define the stiffness of all 6 degrees of freedom, How can I calculate them?
Is CONAN (CONe ANalysis) program adaptable by SeismoStruct? Can I use it?
Could you please tell me how can I create a correct model?
Is there any body that do it before?
And could you please lead me or send me a sample project file.
My email address is:

Thanks a lot for your helping
