POUNDING EFFECTS DURING AN EARTHQUAKE, WITH AND WITHOUT CONSIDERATION OF SOIL-STRUCTURE INTERACTION (2014)
Dobre D. , Dragomir C. et al.
<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 ...
English R. , MacRae G. A. et al.
This paper investigates the influence of hysteretic characteristics of structures on contents damage. The damage to contents considered was limited to sliding induced damage, excluding rocking induced damage. A single storey structure and contents were modelled ...
Aftershocks following an earthquake can be damaging to the built environment, as observed in New Zealand during 2010 and 2011. In this paper, the aftershock sequence is discussed and a soil-foundation-structure numerical model is introduced. The numerical ...
