Soil-structure interaction
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 ...

During the construction of a building, a transfer of loads occurs from the columns which tend to settle more to
those that tend to settle less. This observable fact can be attributed to the mechanism called static soil-structure interaction
(SSI). In order to understand this mechanism, which is often not considered in designs, an...

The loads on columns related to foundation settlements of a building localized in the city of Rio de Janeiro have been analysed. Settlements and strains in some columns have been measured from the beginning of construction. The structural behaviour was simulated with the finite element method with a model for each building stage related to the measureme...
