Optimization of a Special Moment Resisting Frame (SMRF) Under the Consideration of Earthquake Loading
Mohd Talha Usmani
Abstract: The main challenge faced by Structural Engineers is to go for the most ecient and economical design with accurate results in solution to ensure that the nal design of a building must be serviceable for its function purpose over the design life time. This Research presents the detailed knowledge about optimization of special moment resisting frame under the consideration of earthquake loading. Various aspects of designing and its use in constructing important and challenging structures is explained in detail. The observations are being made on STAAD Pro. The various changes in member properties is also mentioned in detail. Civil engineering is the vast branch and this deals with the construction of various structures whether it may be building, bridges, towers etc. This research presents the changes being made on a special moment resisting frame used in a building to make it economical. Some changes are being made in sectional dimensions of the members to resist load on a structure and these changes are made to decrease dead load of structure. Earthquake load is considered to check effect of earthquake loading on the structure. Analysis is done to check various outcomes due to dead load, live load and earthquake load.
