This paper presents an efficient approach for the modal analysis of coupled soil-structure systems, for which the dynamic response is strongly influenced by the embedment in the soil. The methodology is based on a finite element-perfectly matched layer model that allows for the derivation of frequency-independent system matrices and the computation of the modal properties of the coupled system. This is achieved by solving a nonlinear ...
