Abstract

An analytical dynamic 2-D structure-soil-structure interaction formulation using simple discrete models for structures and soil, and including a rotational spring as a key buildings interaction mechanism is proposed. Following a series of simplifying assumptions, the dynamic problem is conveniently reduced to a meaningful set of four parameters. Insight into the influence of the geometrical characteristics of the structures, distance between them and soil type on the dynamic structure-soil-structure interaction effects is examined.
