AbstractSoil foundation is well known for being anisotropic and multilayered, with further poroelastic coupling. Its response under dynamic loads (with time-harmonic being the frequency spectral components) has been always a challenge to civil engineers. In this talk, by introducing the mathematically elegant cylindrical system of vector functions and the unconditionally stable propagation layer matrix based on the dual-variable and position method, we present a systematic investigation on the static, time-harmonic responses of layered foundations under static and time-harmonic loads. The influence of soil anisotropy, layering and imperfect interface on the soil response is studied in detail. With this forward solution, we then develop a new algorithm for attacking the corresponding inverse problem, i.e., the most complicated and difficult soil-structure interaction (SSI). Utilizing the newly developed semi-analytical method, the important SSI coefficients of the fundamental disc load are calculated and presented. This include the coupling between porous and elastic phases and the coupling between the rocking and shearing, which have been mostly neglected in recent literature.
