Soil-structure interaction
<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 ...

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 experimental campaign and a n...
