Analysis of Buildings with Slab Discontinuity

Babita Elizabath Baby | Sreeja S [5]


Abstract: Openings are common in buildings nowadays. When subjected to lateral loads, buildings with slab openings are often vulnerable to damages. Correct location of openings can offer efficient strength and serviceability to the structure. Slab openings are provided for lighting purpose, architectural beauty etc. In the present work slab openings are provided as discontinuity at different locations such as at center, at corners and at periphery. In each case linear and nonlinear analysis (push over analysis) are done in ETABS software.


Keywords: Seismic analysis, diaphragm discontinuity, nonlinear analysis, pushover analysis, Response spectrum analysis
