Abstract

An earthquake is a sudden, rapid shaking of the earth caused by the breaking and shifting of rock beneath the earth’s surface. Earthquakes are among the most powerful events on earth, and their results can be terrifying. The Seismic Pounding can be defined as the collision of adjacent buildings during the earthquakes. This Seismic pounding occurs when the separation distance between adjacent buildings is not large enough to accommodate the relative motion during earthquake events. Here two adjacent building are been considered of size 10mX30m (Building A) and 15mX10m (Building B) are considered for the study purpose. Two models of the same kind are created viz., Structure without Shear Wall (Model 1), Structure with Shear Wall (Model 2) in ETABS software and are analyzed using Response Spectrum method of analysis. These models are compared for Storey displacement, drift and acceleration values. It was concluded that the Structure with Shear Wall (Model 2) offer greater resistance against pounding.
