Abstract

A geotechnical engineering microcomputer program has been developed for the determination of permanent slope displacements resulting from earthquake shaking. The Newmark procedure, in which accelerations in excess of yield accelerations are double integrated to obtain displacements, has been incorporated into the program DISPLMT. Several user options are available for describing the yield acceleration function, including variation with time and variation with displacement. Screen graphics are available which allow the user to observe the down slope movements of the Newmark sliding block as they increase with time during the simulated earthquake. Additional aspects of the subject are discussed.
