Analysis of GFRG Multistoried Buildings with Irregular Horizontal and Vertical Configurations

Sumayya M Kareem [2] | Linda Ann Mathew [7]


Abstract: Glass fiber reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) panel is a new building panel product, where there is a tremendous need for cost effective mass-scale affordable housing. GFRG panel otherwise called Rapidwall, is a vitality effective green building material with gigantic potential for use as load bearing and non-load bearing wall panels. They are load bearing panels with cavities suitable for both external and internal walls. It can likewise be used as intermediate floor slab/roof slab in combination with RCC as a composite material. They are not only eco-friendly, but also resistant to termites, heat, rot, corrosion, water and fire. Concrete infill with vertical reinforcement rods enhances its vertical and lateral load capabilities. Comparative studies of low rise, medium rise and high rise GFRG and RC buildings with horizontal irregularity have been carried out in the present investigation. Rapid wall panel provides speedier construction and leads to environmental protection. Subsequently, it is a perfect option building material to replace bricks or concrete blocks. This paper focuses on equivalent static analysis and response spectrum analysis of high rise, medium rise and low rise GFRG and RC buildings with horizontal irregularity to evaluate the maximum displacement and drift.


Keywords: panel, horizontal and vertical irregularity, equivalent static analysis, response spectrum analysis, displacement, drift
