Specificity of dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete foundations under turbogrnerators

Roman Ciesielski, Bogumił Wrana
In dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete turboset foundation updated numerical methods analysis should be used: FEM (Finite Element Method) and SEM (Spectral Element Method). This second one adopted to frame foundation analysis is presented in details. The advantage of this method for turbodet foundation dynamic analysis is proved. Numerical example of calculation is presented too.
Keywords: turbogenerators foundations; spectral element method; natural frequencies of founadtion
