Comprehensive and Powerful

QUAKE/W is a geotechnical finite element software product for the dynamic analysis of earth structures subjected to earthquake shaking, or point dynamic forces from a blast or a sudden impact load. Using QUAKE/W, you can determine the motion and excess pore-water pressures that arise due to shaking. Its comprehensive formulation makes QUAKE/W well suited to analyzing a wide range of problems.
Generalized material property functions allow you to use any laboratory or published data. Three constitutive models are supported: a Linear-Elastic model, an Equivalent Linear model, and an effective stress Non-Linear model. QUAKE/W uses the Direct Integration Method to compute the motion and excess pore-water pressures arising from inertial forces at user-defined time steps.
 

Typical Applications

QUAKE/W can model the dynamic behaviour of almost any earth structure, including:
  • Earth embankment dams
  • Natural soil and rock slopes
  • Loose ground deposits
  • Estimation of post-earthquake deformation
  • Impact loads from dynamic blasting
  • Any natural, near-horizontal ground sites with potential for excess porewater pressure generation during earthquake shaking
  • 이외에 더 많은 기능들이 있습니다.

Features

  • Linear analysis using Linear-Elastic soil properties
  • Equivalent Linear analysis, which varies soil properties for successive iterations (Damping Ratio and GModulus vary with cyclic strain for successive iterations)
  • Generalized data point functions for specifying material properties, including functions for overburden correction function (Ks), shear stress correction (Ka), cyclic number, pore pressure, damping ratio, and G modulus reduction
  • Imported earthquake records; both horizontal and vertical acceleration vs. time records can be used
  • Scale peak acceleration and time duration of imported earthquake records for site-specific conditions
  • Boundary condition types include X and Y displacements, forces, pressures, and spring constants, as well as stress, fluid pressure, and self-weight gravity loading
  • Definition of liquefaction potential using a collapse surface and steady-state strength
  • Structural elements for soilstructure interaction; specifying both axial and flexural stiffness can affect the dynamic response of the system
  • History nodes show complete record of displacement, velocity and acceleration
  • Many ways to view results, including x-y plots, contours, deformed mesh, animation, spectral analysis, data tables, and Mohr circles
  • View most result parameters for static conditions, dynamic conditions, or both
  • View displacements, velocities and accelerations as relative values (the finite element results) or as absolute values (the results added to the earthquake record)
