Abstract

This paper focuses on the stratigraphic effects and describes the results of 1Dnon-linear seismic response analyses carried out using the computer code Deepsoil vs. 6.1. Aset of ideal profiles of soft soil deposits, belonging to the soil class C according to Eurocode 8and Italian seismic regulation, were considered varying the bedrock depth H and the averageshear wave velocity VS,H and assuming a complaint bedrock. The parameters defining thebackbone curve have been calibrated using shear modulus reduction curves available in theliterature for soils of low to medium plasticity. A set of horizontal acceleration time histories,recorded on stiff horizontal outcropping bedrock, with peak values in the range 0.044g-0.279gare used as input motions. The analysis results were presented in terms of peak accelerationand acceleration amplification ratio at the ground surface and are compared with a large setof data concerning field and numerical data.
