Study of buildings collision

Modeling of the seismic behavior of two adjacent buildings - Expertise of several collision scenarios (expansion joint filled or not filled)

Assess the harmfulness of the two buildings collision taking into account several hypotheses defining the expansion joint : empty, filled with concrete, filled with polystyrene (several elasticity modulus). Study of a strenghtening solution based on linking the two building with dampers.

Deformation of the two buildings - Distance between the structures at the joint location

Shear force sensitivity in the structural elements according to different expansion joint configurations
