<p>During earthquake there is a considerable damage to structures which are above the ground level as well as to those structures which are completely underground. Several studies were carried out for analysing dynamic behavior of these structures. The underground ...

<p>The paper demonstrates that whereas often in seismic geotechnical design it is not realistically feasible to design with ample factor of safety against failure as is done in static design, an &ldquo;engineering&rdquo; apparent seismic factor of safety less ...

<p>The paper introduces a novel approach for modeling nonlinear hysteretic behavior of reinforced concrete structures in the complex frequency domain. The new approach can be used to perform fast and accurate nonlinear SSI analyses, including sophisticated ...

<p>The pounding between adjacent buildings can cause both architectural and structural damages. The paper presents some aspects related to the Vrancea seismic motions pattern, a review of observed damages after a strong earthquake due to pounding of buildings ...

<p>The object of the paper is the influence of the soil-structure interaction on the dynamic response of masonry towers, for which a high level of stress is involved already in the static field. The relevant deformations and displacements at the base of the ...

<p>Observations of the performance of basement walls and retaining structures in recent earthquakes show that failures of basement or deep excavation walls in earthquakes are rare even if the structures were not designed for the actual intensity of the earthquake ...

<p>Observations of the performance of many different types of retaining structures in recent earthquakes show that failures of retaining structures, including braced excavation supports and basement walls, are rare even if the structures were not designed ...

At 12:51pm local time on 22 February 2011, a Mw 6.2 aftershock of the September 4, 2010, Darfield Earthquake shook the city of Christchurch, New Zealand. The aftershock occurred on an unmapped fault less than 8 km from the city center resulting in the collapse ...

In this paper, a simple numerical model is used to simulate the contents sliding behaviour. After a brief introduction of the methodologies and development of sliding model, the contents sliding behaviour during an earthquake shaking is investigated analytically, ...
