The phenomenon of pounding that occurs during earthquakes for adjacent buildings may cause severe damage to the structure and may cause a complete collapse of the structure. This paper aims to make a comparison between the practical and theoretical results resulting from the work of Matlab Code, taking into account the calculation of the pounding force between adjacent towers, and study the effect of changing the coefficient of restitution on the acceleration time history and pounding force between adjacent buildings, study the peak impact force with respect to the stiffness of impact spring element. An impact simulation is carried out numerically using a nonlinear viscoelastic model. The results showed that the higher the coefficient of restitution, the lower the pounding forces between adjacent buildings and the maximum acceleration value. It also resulted from the study that the higher the impact stiffness parameter, the greater the pounding force between adjacent buildings.
