It has been observed during earthquakes that adjacent building, or bridge segments,

might come into contact if the separation distance between them is not sufficient so

as to accommodate their relative movements. This phenomenon, known as the

earthquake-induced structural pounding, may lead to local damage at the contact

locations during moderate seismic excitations or may result in significant damage or

even total collapse of colliding structures in the case of severe ground motions.
