After a brief review of the principal effects of soil-structure interaction on the response of structures subjected to earthquakes, a simple practical procedure is presented for evaluating these effects. The procedure is next applied to a study of the response of a proposed 400-ft steel gravity platform in 300-ft water depth, and the results of the study are discussed. The structure investigated consists of three large-diameter legs of tubular construction interconnected by a truss-type bracing system and supported on three circular pads.
