Soil-structure interaction analyses

Gerwick performs advanced soil-structure interaction (SSI) analysis for a variety of structures including major bridges, tunnels, ports and waterfront structures.
We use state-of-the-art engineering methods for SSI analysis including, FLAC, PLAXIS, ABAQUS and other advanced finite element tools. This allows us to fully incorporate geometric and material non-linearities, which results in better understanding of the structures during a seismic event, leading to higher degree of certainty and thereby increasing the potential for optimization.
