ANALYSIS OF RC BUILDINGS DESIGN FOR INDIAN SEISMIC ZONES

SURYAKANT RAJ, P C DIWAN

Abstract


ABSTRACT:

 

Reinforced concrete (RC) buildings are routinely designed and detailed to have somewhat higher strengths than those required for actual service load conditions. Generally, the members are provided with larger sizes and greater material strengths than the minimum design requirements a stipulated in the building design codes. The present design procedures for seismic design also results in greater strengths. Moreover, the redundancy in the structure on account of in redistribution of stresses will also lead to increased overall strength. This study deals with the comparison of percentage longitudinal steel, reinforcement detailing and design base shear of three RC framed buildings with varying storey heights in different Indian seismic zones. Moreover, it also comprises of performance based analysis of the buildings taken under consideration and designed as per Indian codal provisions in terms of their over-strength factor using computer-based push-over analysis.
