|For the construction of floors, roofs, bridges, etc, structural concrete slabs are provided to have flat surfaces, typically horizontal. Also this structural concrete slab might be supported by walls, by reinforced concrete beams usually constructed monolithically with the slab, by steel beams, by columns, or by the ground. RC flat slabs are one of the most popular floor systems used in residential buildings, car parks and many other structures.
The object of the present work is to compare the behaviour of multi-storey buildings with flat slab using shear wall In structural engineering, a shear wall is a vertical element of a seismic force resisting system that is designed to resist in-plane lateral forces, typically wind and seismic loads. In many jurisdictions, the International Building Code and International Residential Code govern the design of shear walls.
Details of the building structure for analysis are given below:
Number of storeys: G+4.Height of each storey: 3.7m.Total height of building: 14.8m.Number of bays along X: 7.Number of bays along Y: 3.Sizes of columns: 600 x 600mm.Thickness of flat slab: 230 mm. Thickness of flat drop: 330 mm.
1. To study the performance of multi-storey buildings of rectangular shape having flat slab
under seismic loading considering static analysis.
2. To study the manually design of flat slabs according to IS codes 456-2000 for the practice of the concrete structures using software analysis of flat slab.
3. To study some parameters taken in Staad Pro software with providing two sides of building using shear wall.
4. To compare the manual design and software design of multi-storey buildings.
5. To analyse both methodologies and compare between then for the static load and seismic load considerations taken into account.
Present work provides good information on the result parameters displacement
