Abstract

This study presents large-scale shake table test results to investigate the responses of RC structures exposed to earthquake-induced pounding effects. The effects of pounding on structural responses and damage were discussed by comparing the experimental results with and without interaction. In the shake table test, ½ scaled two-story RC specimens were used. To investigate structural responses under seismic excitations of different intensities, a series of shake table tests was organized. Hence, a sum of 15 tests were carried out. Due to the destructive effects caused by column and slab interaction, the collision between RC structures with different story heights was simulated in the experiments. Experimental results show that critical increases occur in acceleration values measured at floor level due to pounding, and column-slab poundings can cause significant damage to columns.
