Design and Analysis of a Multistory Building Reinforced Concrete Frame in Different Seismic Zones
Dinesh Singh | V. V Singh
Abstract: This study work focuses on comparison of steel quantity of different seismic zones. The structural performance of the building is analyzed for consideration of gravity loads and seismic loads in zone-II, Zone-III, Zone-IV, Zone-V. The study includes understanding the most occurred issues that lead to poor performance of the structure throughout earthquake, to achieve their applicable behavior in event of future earthquakes. The analyzed structure was symmetrical, G+15, Ordinary RC Moment-resisting frame (OMRF). Modeling of the structure was done using Staad pro. V8i software. Time period for the structure along different directions was retrieved from the software and as per IS 18932002-05. The lateral seismic forces in reinforced concrete frame were calculated as per IS 18932002-05. Based on research work the variation in behavior of the structure under the gravity and seismic loads for different zones was predicted. The results show the changes in the magnitude of Reactions, displacements, moments and the results also shows the variations in quantity of the materials.
