Performance of Earthquake Resistant Reinforced Concrete Building against Blast Loadings

Disha Kukekar | Vaishali Mendhe

Abstract: In recent times, everyone is concerned about earthquake loadings as long as structural design is concerned. What we analyze while going for any structure, we normally head towards the effects of earthquake if concerned about the Highrise buildings. But there are some more factors are there which we need to take into account like fire and blast. As earthquakes are unpredictable, so we dont have exact magnitude of it to analyze structure. While analyzing any structure against earthquake, normally we use the magnitudes and factors as per the codes which developed from the previously occurred earthquake. The main objective of this study is to analyze a reinforced concrete building against earthquake loadings and then against blast loadings by taking different standoff distance. For the purpose of earthquake analysis, IS1893 part 1, 2016 is been used and for analysis against blast loadings, some of the literatures is been studied. After analyzing reinforced concrete building for both the uncertainties, the analysis results have been computed and compared among them. From the results, it is seen that there is a quite increase in analysis results if we are increasing charge of Trinitrotoluene TNT.
