Abstract

This paper presents a study on the vertical response of laminated rubbers in case of collision with retaining wall and assessment various factors affecting these. Various factors are nonlinearity of superstructure and laminated rubbers in case of large deformation and soil-structure interaction. Considering these, we do simulation analysis in case of collision with retaining wall As a result, the following conclusion are obtained, l) Considering the non-linearily of laminated rubbers, the vertical response of laminated rubbers is increased, the influence is greater at the tension side as compared with the compression side. 2) The horizontal response of superstructure and the vertical response of laminated rubbers are reduced by soil-structure-interaction, especially poor ground. 3) Considering the non-linearily of superstructure, the vertical response of laminated rubbers is decreased. This effects is greatest among the three factors we studied, but if strength of superstructure is high, it is necessary to perform appropriate modeling for the effect of soil-structure interaction.
