Seismic design of reinforced concrete mat foundations has advanced significantly in the last twenty years. As analytical capabilities have improved, primarily in the form of finite element analysis, the mathematical modeling of these continuous structural elements has led to seemingly more precise designs. Yet, fundamental questions still remain regarding the seismic performance of these thick foundation
systems.

This Technical Brief attempts to address what is known and what is unknown about this subject, so that a structural engineer can proceed with a seismic design in an informed manner. Because many of the parameters associated with a mat foundation design can be highly variable, designs that consider this variability are encouraged.
