The load and deformation characteristics of the structural and geotechnical (soil) components of the foundations of structures can affect, and in some cases dominate, seismic response and performance. Recognizing this important fact, many structural engineers have included representations of foundation strength and stiffness in their seismic analysis models for many years. This was especially the case for those engineers conducting sophisticated analyses in the nuclear power plant industry.
