Study on deformation behaviours of soil under slow reciprocating loading is not often seen but in practical engineering there are many examples of such case.

Consolidated drained triaxial tests are conducted for the saturated sand under slow reciprocating loading by the advanced GDS stress path triaxial apparatus.

Under reciprocating loading , the interaction relation of pile and earth are influenced by circulating frequency, the way of load addition, stress route and other.

In combination with the work of < the design and technical construction rules of flexible dolphin pier in port engineering > of designing institute of water transport of transport, the data of some typical experiments of domestic and international pile foundation were analysed emphatically. Through comparion of the relation of P-Y curves between single pile and pile group under lateral loading and lateral reciprocating loading , the experience formula of P-Y curve of single pile under reciprocating loading role is put forward.

In the nonviscous prestressed concrete framed structure there is a relative slide between the prestressed bar and the concrete wall owing to the reciprocating load,leading to the production of dissipated energy and additional stress.

To satisfy the needs of project design, it is necessary to study for calculation method and the working properties of pile foundation under reciprocating load role.

It carries out finite element calculation on flexural capacity of the member not being strengthened and the one strengthened by carbon fiber composite materials,simulates shock resistant performance of reinforced concrete column under comprehensive actions of single and double-direction reciprocating load with finite element software ANSYS,and compares the computing results,which shows the feasibility of finite element molding method,in order to offer effective theoretical analysis method for test and construction of strengthening engineering.

To model characteristics of soil deformation and pore water pressure development under cyclic loading a boundary surface model was used which can model plastic deformation under low level of stress． The elastic unloading was replaced by elastoplastic process then a boundary surface form of generalized plasticity theory was presented． Experimental data and numerical simulation result have good agreement．

The characteristics of load versus deformation hysteretic curve including bearing capacity, skeleton curve and energy dissipation are presented and discussed.

In this paper, the experimental results on full scale masonry walls with reinforced concrete tie-columns subjected to lateral reversed loading are presented. The formulae for calculating the lateral load bearing capacity and stiffness of such structure are suggested and a more rational model of hysteretic characteristic is developed.The nonelastic responses of two typical masonry buildings with tie-columns have been statistically analyzed by using a set of artificial accelerogramms.

In this paper, the experimental results on full scale masonry walls with reinforced concrete tie-columns subjected to lateral reversed loading are presented. The formulae for calculating the lateral load bearing capacity and stiffness of such structure are suggested and a more rational model of hysteretic characteristic is developed.The nonelastic responses of two typical masonry buildings with tie-columns have been statistically analyzed by using a set of artificial accelerogramms. The regularity of required ductility distribution in stories along the height of building has also been studied. The value of structural influence coefficient C is found to be a little smaller than that given in the current aseismic code for masonry structure in general.

During the Tangshan Earthquake in 1976, there were events of soil liquefactions in the silty sand deposits on banks of Haihe River. In order to study the liquefaction behaviour of these deposits, saturated sand specimens are prepared in lab in the dry volumetric weight of the undisturbed samples and examined under cyclic loading for the cyclic shear resistance, pore pressure, and the residual shear strain developed.Tests are accomplished by means of a cyclic simple shear test apparatus developed in Nanjing Hydraulic...
