This article addresses the importance of considering foundation-structure interaction in the design of high-rise buildings. Embedding the behavior of the foundation in the analysis of structures is fundamental to simulate the real deformability of these constructions. On the foundation design side, the addition of structure stiffness implies in the reduction of ...

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="mso-ansi-language: EN-US;" lang="EN-US">Tabriz, as one of the most earthquake-prone cities in the Iran plateau, has experienced enormous earthquakes that have even destroyed the city altogether. Considering this seismological background and the vicinity of Tabriz’s northwestern fault, reducing the possible ...

<p>Soil-structure interaction (SSI) evaluates how soil or rock deformability imposes on the structure a different load path in a hypothesis of fixed supports, altering the loads acting on the structural elements and the ground. This paper discusses the results of the SSI effects in two buildings with a reinforced concrete structure and shallow foundations ...

<p>In this study, a particle-based approach is employed to simulate the fluid flow through single fractures considering detailed geometrical characteristics of the fracture walls at meso-scale. For this purpose, Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) which is an efficient computational fluid dynamic method for simulation of fluid flow in media with grossly irregul...
