Description VERSAT-1D is a computer program for dynamic 1D nonlinear finite element analyses of site response of soil columns. VERSAT-1D is a sub module of VERSAT-2D, which uses stress-strain constitutive relationships from linear, or nonlinear, effective stress methods of analysis to study soil liquefaction, earthquake induced deformation and dynamic soil-structure interaction such as pile-supported bridges. Main features: Application of horizontal and vertical accelerations at the base; Global force equilibrium enforced at all time; Linear elastic model; Non-linear hyperbolic stress-strain model for sand and for clay; Stress level dependent stiffness parameters; Effective stress sand model including dynamic pore water pressure; Three models for computing dynamic pore water pressure; Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion at all time; Modified stiffness parameters by dynamic pore water pressure; Calculation of ground deformations caused by soil liquefaction; Calculation of factor of safety against liquefaction; Simulation of sheet pile wall and anchors; Very large strain (deformation) analysis; Gravity on and off; Free-field stress boundary; 4-node solid elements to represent soils. It incorporates a viscous/elastic base option to examine the influence of rigidity of the underlying elastic medium on response.
