Thesis Title: Effect of Lateral Torsional Movement of Floors on Pounding Response of Buildings

The objectives of this study can be summarized as follows:
1. Understanding the pounding behavior of adjacent structures during earthquakes.
2. Investigate the effects of pounding between adjacent buildings which are subjected to seismic loads and constructed without sufficient seismic gap especially the case of zero gap distance between buildings, due to its wide-spread existence in case of actual buildings built in many cities.
3. Analyze and study the structural behavior due to Translational (lateral only) pounding as well as lateral-torsional pounding between adjacent buildings, 3-D finite element models were built for the analysis process
4. An extensive parametric study is conducted to determine the effect of various parameters on the pounding behavior of the buildings, from which are the building’s mass, stiffness, height, and torsional rotation, while studying those factors both, individually as well as in relation with each other.
5. Determination of the most effective parameters.
6. Developing conclusions related to the structural behavior of the buildings, as well as useful recommendations for design work as well as future research work in this field.
