Discrete Model for Dynamic Structure-Soil-Structure Interaction

H. Aldaikh (Lead / Corresponding author), Nicholas Alexander, Erdin Ibraim

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A simple discrete model is used to treat a problem of dynamic through soil structure to structure interaction via an analytical 2-D formulation that is then numerically solved in time domain. The model includes a frequency independent rotational spring as a key buildings interaction mechanism. Insight into the influence of the geometrical characteristics of the structures and distance between them on the dynamic structure-soil-structure interaction effects is examined.
