Comparative Study of Multi-Storied RC Structure For Seismic and Wind Loads using Structural Analysis Software’s
This High-rise construction is commonly adopted in today’s world due to growing urban development, scarcity of land and advancement in construction technology. Worldwide people are going for multi-storied or high-rise buildings so it is really important to make it safer for people residing there and also to reduce its overall cost to achieve more economy and efficiency. Thus, increasing the challenges in the construction day by day. The new ideas are discovered day by day so that we can easily live our life without being afraid of hazards or extremities of nature such as wind, earthquake etc. Earthquake & wind are the major natural forces which causes destruction worldwide. Therefore, Structural stability and integrity of any structure plays very important role. Structural analysis & design are the most important steps in evaluating significant threats to integrity & stability of any structure. Once these structures are designed, they must fulfil basic aspects of safety and serviceability. Nowadays, the design strategy of buildings is also changing as much more complicated building geometries are utilized. Because of all these challenges faced by structural engineers, various software packages such as STAAD, ETABS, SAP 2000 etc. were developed. These software packages have revolutionized the structural analysis and design technology with great ease. The present project deals with the planning of a Basement+G+8 building using AutoCAD software which is simultaneously analyzed using structural analysis software’s such as STAAD and ETABS. The analysis results from STAAD and ETABS will be used to derive the results of earthquake and wind analysis on these structures.
