Abstract
Seismic pounding between adjoining buildings frequently causes serious damage; although collision can be avoided with proper separation, can still occur due to code non-fulfillment, loose requirements of old codes, and seismicity underestimation. Inside this context, this work deals with collision between two buildings with aligned slabs. The simulation of this phenomenon is not obvious, involving stress traveling waves, high-frequency behavior, and local effects. Complex distributed continuum m...
