Understanding the nonlinear behavior of shallow building foundations under large-amplitude

loading is an important aspect of performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE). Soil

yielding beneath foundations can be an effective energy-dissipation mechanism; however, this

yielding may lead to excessive permanent deformations. The objective of this report is to

develop and test procedures to account for foundation nonlinearity and uplift in PBEE.
