Numerical Analysis of Dynamic Force Acting Perpendicularly on a Wall Made of Concrete Blocks with Rubber Inserts

Published Online: 2016-12-22 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/tvsb-2016-0021


In this paper numerical analysis considering the influence of dynamical force acting on wall made of concrete blocks with rubber inserts is presented. By examining the stress values on front and back surface of the analysed wall structure model, the effectiveness of proposed solution can be measured comparing to the wall made of concrete blocks without rubber inserts. Complete numerical analysis was performed in ADINA program.
