In this research, both kinematic interaction (KI) and inertial interaction (II) effects of soil-structure
interaction (SSI) on inelastic seismic demands of structures are investigated. Site effect is also considered
only by applying ground motions recorded at site classes D and E (as defined in NEHRP and
FEMA-440 ) that on them SSI effect is considerable. Carrying out a parametric study, the structure and
underlying soil are modeled as a Single Degree Of Freedom (SDOF) structure with elasto-plastic behavior
and a mathematical simplified 3DOF system, based on the concept of Cone Models, respectively. Also
the foundation is considered as a rigid cylinder embedded in the soil with different embedment ratios.
Then the whole soil-structure systems are analyzed under 30 ground motion recorded at site classes D and
E and a comprehensive parametric study is performed for a wide range of non-dimensional parameters
defining SSI problem. Results indicated that ignoring SSI causes considerable and in some cases un-conservative
differences in seismic demands of structures. In the case of embedded foundation, it is observed
that rocking input motion due to KI plays the main role and increase the structural demands especially in
deep foundation embedment and slender buildings located on soft soils.
Consequently, comparing the results with and without inclusion of SSI effects reveals that both II and
KI effects of SSI play an important role in analyses or design procedures and ignoring them may cause
un-conservative results in cases of deep embedded foundation and slender structures.
