Seismic Analysis Of Braced And Unbraced RC Framed Building

[Full Text]



Bhushan O. Dongarwar, Deepa Telang






Abstract: Earthquakes are major natural destruction, responsible for loss of life and damage of property. For decreasing these damages in multi storied building we can apply bracing. The Bracing is attached to provide lateral support to wall framing. Metal straps, timber or sheet bracing can be used for bracing. A typical G+14th story regular RC frame building is designed for various types of bracing like X-bracing, inverted chevron, braced chevron brace, k bracing and carried out through seismic analysis. Three types of different section for same cross sectional area. i.e. ISA,ISMC,ISLB sections are used to compare for same patterns of bracing with unbraced building. The principle objective is to arriving to suitable configuration, modelling, developing models for seismic analysis and design of Multi Storey Building.
