The State and the Arts of Research on Foundation Buried Depth Effect on Building Structure

Liang Li, Xiuli Du, Liyun Li


The state and the arts of research on foundation buried depth effect on building structures are reviewed and summarized in detail from such aspects as static response property and dynamic response property, and a brief discussion is carried out on the future developments and studies. Different scholars have conducted research for this aspect of the issue; the conclusions vary because of differences in the conditions of the upper structure stiffness. Superstructure should consider different stiffness conditions a lot of numerical calculations, foundation depth summary obtained reaction influence on the dynamic characteristics and dynamic soil structure interaction system of law.
