<p>The research presented in this thesis focuses on tunnel&ndash;building interaction, and more specifically on buildings with shallow foundations. </p> <p>The focus of this work is the effect of tunnelling on concrete framed buildings. The research deals ...
Impact between structures of bridge sections can play a major, unexpected role in seismic structural damage. Linear and non-linear models are developed to analyze structural impact and response of two single-degree-of-freedom structures, representing adjacent ...
