Pounding damage is a serious seismic hazard in highly populated areas during a major earthquake. The main objective of this research is to evaluate the effect of earthquake ground motion spatial variations on the minimum separations required between adjacent buildings to avoid seismic pounding and the pounding responses of adjacent structures.
