Abstract: Many evidences exist for a connection between galaxy interactions and induced star formation. However, a large range of responses of galaxies to tidal interactions is found, both in observations and in numerical simulations. We will discuss some recent results obtained analysing a large sample (∼ 1000) of simulations of interacting pairs and their agreement with the most recent observational works.
