Abstract: From the past studies, every engineering structure was designed to withstand all external and internal forces applicable to the structure. For this many design methods are implemented and different techniques are found manually, experimentally and practically. One of the parameters which influence the analysis results is, support condition of the structure. Assuming fixed or pinned support in regular analysis of structure considering soil interaction with foundation may not produce accurate results as support condition differ by type of soil ie., loose, medium or hard & their characteristics. So, there is need to study about structural interaction with soil and their outcome deeply. Now a day’s soil structure interaction studies are playing major role in the analysis & design of structures. Many studies are carried out on structure interaction of soil considering seismic or lateral forces. This paper reviews the studies carried out on structural interaction with soil and its impacts on various reinforced concrete buildings subjected to dynamic loads.
Keywords: Structural interaction of soil, Seismic loads, foundations, Time history analyses, Impact loads.
