Investigating the seismic response of ancient multi-drum colonnades with two rows of columns using an object-oriented designed software
A software application, based on the Discrete Element Method (DEM), has been developed, using a modern object-oriented design and programming approach, in order to enable the effective simulation of multi-drum columns and ...
An efficient methodology for simulating earthquake-induced 3D pounding of buildings
The current paper presents an efficient methodology for numerically simulating in three dimensions adjacent buildings that may experience pounding during strong earthquakes. In particular, a new approach to the numerical ...
Two-dimensional numerical investigation of the effects of multiple sequential earthquake excitations on ancient multidrum columns
Ancient monuments of Greek and Roman classical architecture usually consist of multi-drum columns that are constructed of stone blocks placed on top of each other. Several research studies deal with the seismic behaviour ...
Effect of the seismic excitation angle on the dynamic response of adjacent buildings during pounding
The excitation angle or angle of incidence is the angle in which the horizontal seismic components are applied with respect to the principal structural axes during a time history analysis. In this study, numerical simulations ...
