ABSTRACT: Inspections of past and recent earthquake damage have illustrated the fact that building set ups are susceptible to severe harm and/or collapse during moderate to good ground action. Among the likely structural damage, seismic induced pounding have been commonly seen in several earthquakes. A parametric study about buildings pounding response along with proper seismic hazard minimization practice pertaining to adjacent structures is completed. Three kinds of recorded earthquake excitation are used for input. The effect of influence is analyzed using linear and non-linear contact pressure model for different separation miles and in contrast to nominal unit without racing consideration. Pounding produces speed and shear at various story levels that are more than those obtained from the no pounding circumstance, while the top drift depend upon which input excitation characteristics. As well, increasing gap width will probably be effective if the separation is usually sufficiently vast practically to remove contact.

Several destructive earthquakes have strike Egypt in both famous and recent times from distant and close to earthquakes. The annual energy release in Egypt as well as its vicinity is equivalent to an earthquake with degree varying by 5. a few to several. 3. Knocking between closely spaced building structures could be a serious hazard in seismically active areas. Investigations of past and up to date earthquakes damage have illustrated several instances of pounding destruction (Astaneh-Asl ou al. 1994, Northridge Investigation Team mil novecentos e noventa e seis, Kasai & Maison 1991) in both equally building and bridge structures. Pounding destruction was observed during the 1985 Mexico earthquake, the 1988 Sequenay earthquake in Canada, the 1992 Cairo earthquake, the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the 1995 Kobe earthquake and 1999 Kocaeli earthquake. Significant pounding was observed at sites more than 90 kilometres from the epicenter thus indicating the feasible catastrophic harm that may happen during future earthquakes having closer epicenters. Pounding of adjacent complexes could have worse damage since adjacent complexes with different dynamic characteristics, which in turn vibrate out of phase and there is not enough separation distance or energy dissipation system to accommodate the relative moves of adjacent buildings. Past seismic requirements did not give definite recommendations to preclude pounding, for that reason and due to economic factors including maximum land use requirements, particularly in the highdensity populated areas of towns, there are many complexes worldwide that are already built in contact or extremely near to another that can suffer racing damage in future earthquakes. A sizable separation is usually controversial coming from both technological (difficulty in using growth joint) and economical (loss of terrain usage) views. The remarkably congested building system in several metropolitan urban centers constitutes a significant concern intended for seismic pounding damage. For these reasons, it has been widely accepted that pounding can be an undesirable phenomenon that should be averted or mitigated (Abdel Raheem 2004, Hayashikawa et ing. 2002, Hao & Zhang 1999, Pantelides & Ma 1998, Kasai et 's. 1991).
