Abstract:

This volume provides details concerning the digital computer code, VANISH, which was developed for analyzing the Static And Dynamic behavior of Nonlinear Interacting Soil Structures and the volume is intended to serve as a users guide to VANISH. In particular, the code has been designed to be efficient and reliable in determining the response of a soil-covered circular arch used as a aircraft shelter. However, it should also be useful in analyzing a variety of other planar structures. Volume 1 of this report, entitled Summary of Analysis and Experiment gives the fundamental concepts underlying the VANISH code. Nevertheless, most of the knowledge needed merely to use the VANISH code is available from the present volume, and requires only a general understanding of how the code actually solves a given problem.
