Appropriate Structural System Selection for Mid-Rise Buildings in Afghanistan

Emal Hand | Rais Khan Olfat


Abstract: There are various systems in building envelope, among all of them structural systems governs the overall characteristics of the building, it includes lateral load and gravity load resisting systems. This study conducted to select and propose appropriate structural system for mid-rise building, the selection analysis process were done in three stages. Stage one is based on the limitation and constraints in the use of various structural system in Afghanistan, questionnaire surveys were conducted to find-out the limitation and constraints to different criteria of the structural system in Afghanistan. Stage two evaluate the limitation and constraints to selected appropriate structural system. Several requirements, criteria and sub criteria of structural system were identified. For clear concept and verifying proposed model case studies conducted in six zones of Afghanistan. Stage three is the review of the current status of various structural systems for building, fourteen interviews were conducted.
