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 ...
On poundings of a seismically isolated building with adjacent structures during strong earthquakes
This paper presents selected indicative results from an extensive parametric investigation that has been performed in order to assess the effects of potential earthquake-induced poundings on the overall dynamic response ...
Assessing the effect of inherent nonlinearities in the analysis and design of a low-rise base isolated steel building
Seismic isolation is an effective method for the protection of buildings and their contents during strong earthquakes. This research work aims to assess the appropriateness of the linear and nonlinear models that can be ...
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 ...
