The effect of backfill soil hysteretic damping upon the suppression of resonance for buried arches is examined. Finite element simulation of a buried arch structure shows that the backfill soil hysteretic behavior is a dominant factor in explaining the absence of resonance in arch tests. Keywords Structure-medium interaction, Finite element simulation, Hysteretic damping.
