Abstract

An earthquake is the recognizable trembling of the surface of the earth, which results in the sudden release of kinetic energy in the form of seismic waves. It could be violent enough to cause damages to structures and thus result in great human casualties along with the huge economic loss. The past earthquake studies shows that the interaction of soil and foundation plays a significant role in the response of structure. Also the response of structure during an earthquake is influenced by three linked systems i.e.: the structure, the foundation and the soil surrounding the foundation. Therefore, in the present scenario, seismic analysis of buildings is utmost important. In this review, we describe the past studies focusing on the effect of soil-structure interaction on different parametric structures.
