Earthquakes Analysis of High Rise Buildings with Shear Walls at the Center Core and Center of Each Side of the External Perimeter with Opening

Mahdi Hosseini | N. V. Ramana Rao


Abstract: The usefulness of shear walls in the structural planning of multistory buildings has long been recognized. When walls are situated in advantageous positions in a building, they can be very efficient in resisting lateral loads originating from wind or earthquakes. Incorporation of shear wall has become inevitable in multi-storey building to resist lateral forces. In present work, Forty storey buildings (120m) have been modeled using software package ETABS for earthquake zone V in India. This paper aims to study the behaviour of reinforced concrete building by conducting dynamic analysis for most suited positions and location of shear wall with opening conditions. Symmetrical openings are provided in shear walls with proper sizes to ensure least interruption to force flow through walls. Estimation of structural response such as, storey displacements, base shear, storey drift is carried out. Dynamic responses under zone V earthquake as per IS 1893 (part 1) 2002 have been carried out. In dynamic analysis, Response Spectrum method is used.


Keywords: Response Spectrum method, shear walls, storey displacements, base shear, storey drift, lateral loads
