Seismic Analysis and Cost Estimation of GFRP and RCC Auditorium Building using ETABS

Anna Rebecca Prasad | Anue Marry Mathew


Abstract: Fibre-reinforced plastic or polymer (FRP) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. Fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) is corrosion resistant, lightweight, high in strength, has good thermal conductive and anti-fire performance and not only has a long lifespan, but its production can greatly reduce CO2 emissions both through its method of manufacture, plus its effective thermal insulation qualities. As a consequence, FRP building elements could prove to be one of the newer types of material being used in the construction industry in the near future. Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer (GFRP) has become a staple in the construction field. It is a recently developed technique used for roofs, facades, panels etc. In this paper the GFRP panel is used for facades and ceilings. In this paper involves comparative study of GFRP and Reinforced concrete building, cost estimation of RCC and GFRP. Equivalent static and response spectrum analysis was carried out using ETABS 2015 Software to evaluate base shear, maximum storey drift, maximum storey displacement, storey stiffness.
