One-dimensional (1D) equivalent-linear total-stress site response analysis (SRA) is the de facto standard for state department of transportation (DOT) highway facilities at locations where site-specific ground response analyses are conducted. However, many users and various DOTs have concerns about the applicability of equivalent-linear analyses for the cases where site-specific SRA is most relevant.

NCHRP Research Report 1092: Seismic Site Response Analysis with Pore Water Pressure Generation: Guidelines, from TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program, presents guidelines for the selection and use of methods for 1D nonlinear seismic SRA with excess pore water pressure generation and dissipation.

Supplemental to the report is NCHRP Web-Only Document 383: Seismic Site Response Analysis with Pore Water Pressure Generation: Resources for Evaluation.
