Numerical simulation of monuments by the contact dynamics method

Abstract : The Non Smooth Contact dynamics Method (NSCD or CD) is presented in this paper. The purpose of this method is to deal with large collections of rigid or deformable bodies in contact with unilateral constraints and large friction. The method is applied to monuments made of blocks. The relevance of the modelling is discussed. Several examples of buildings statically an dynamically loaded are presented.
