|In the era of 21st century the buildings that are being constructed are gaining significance, in general, those with best possible outcomes with reference to optimal sizing and reinforcing of the structural elements, mainly beam and column members in multi–storey RC structures. This project paper presents multi-story residential building analyzed and designed with lateral loading effect of earthquake and wind, shear analysis of slab, shear force for the beam and area reinforcement for the frames depending upon the reaction, and on safe bearing capacity of soil due to stability using ETABS. This project is designed as per INDIAN STANDARD CODES. This analysis is carried out by considering several seismic zones.
The entire procedure of structural planning along with design need not only conceptual thinking and imagination also in depth knowledge of science of structural engineering besides knowledge of practical aspects, such as byelaws and recent design codes, backed up by sufficient experience, intuition and judgement. It may be clarified that Code of practice, which is compendia of good practices drawn up by experienced engineers, is intended as guides to engineers and should never be allowed to replace the conscience and competence of the engineer's. The purpose of standards is to ensure and enhance the safety, keeping careful balance between economy and safety.
My research includes storey forces and max/avg storey drifts, modal period and frequencies including Graphical presentation of this reading and charts showing the variation in drifts per storey. This paper also includes area reinforcement of frames, frame planning, beam and column shedules indicating all general information as well as the planning of shear wall for lift area. These results effect of Wind and Seismic forces. Shear forces and bending moments of beams and columns are observed and concluded that larger span have more shear forces and bending moment.|
