Seismic Evaluation of RC Framed Building With and Without Shear Walls (Performance Based Design
J. Muralidhara Rao | Dr. K. Rajasekhar 
Abstract: About 60 % of Indian land is in zone III, IV and V. Major cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi etc are in seismic prone zones. Buildings in these cities are vulnerable to earthquakes and most of the old buildings in these areas are designed and constructed without considering seismic effect. So evaluating the performance and strengthening of these structures, if necessary is essential. There are linear static methods namely code compliance method and nonlinear static methods which are also called as pushover methods namely capacity spectrum method and displacement coefficient method are available. Procedure for evaluating the structures using these methods were studied in this work and a case study on a structure were done using above methods.
