The effect of varying certain parameters concerned in the process of wave propagation in ground-structure systems on the dynamic response is evaluated numerically by using previously established models of the systems. For two types of model having different contact conditions the response resulting from a harmonic line force applied on the ground surface is determined. The results of variation in vibration and sound radiation with varying properties of the ground, contact condition, material and thickness of the structure are presented. It is found that the response strongly depends on both viscosity of the ground and properties of the structure base slab. © 1986.
