Permanent soil deformations after earthquakes implications for design D. Muir Wood Six papers were presented at a colloquium which took place in December 1995, organized jointly by the UK Society for Earthquake and Civil Engineering Dynamics (SECED) and its French counterpart the Association Francaise du Genie Parasismique (AFPS). The papers covered a number of linked themes in dynamic soilstructure interaction. Alain Pecker (Seismic design for the foundations of the Rion Antirion Bridge) described two analyses carried out in the design of the foundations for the Rion-Antirion bridge: rst, an uncoupled analysis in which frequencydependent dynamic impedances of the elastic foundationwith stiffnesses chosen to allow for the strain levels expected in free-eld responsewere used as input to structural analysis...
