Abstract


Conducting experiment on embankment model by shaking table could be an accurate method to evaluate the behavior of embankment or any structures under seismic loading. In this research work, in order to assess the function of seismic force and accurate placement of dense zone in the embankment model,  the results of three experiments have been considered. To evaluate the reaction of the embankment model, it was measured the stress in the system and photographs were taken. The results of three experiments indicated that suitable arrangement of dense zone is the main factor at the play in embankment stability, and in predicting the possibility of embankment behavior.
