Design And Analysis Of Multistoried Residential Building Using Staad Pro

Voddineni Praveen, Jangam Mahesh Kumar, Md. Subhan


The design process of structural planning and design requires not only imagination and conceptual thinking but also sound knowledge of science of structural engineering besides the knowledge of practical aspects, such as recent design codes, bye laws, backed up by ample experience, intuition and judgment. The purpose of standards is to ensure and enhance the safety, keeping careful balance between economy and safety. In the present study multistoried building at Madhapur, Hyderabad, India is designed (Slabs, Beams, Columns and Footings) using Auto CAD software. In order to design them, it is important to first obtain the plan of the particular building that is, positioning of the particular rooms (Drawing room, bed room, kitchen toilet etc.) such that they serve their respective purpose and also suiting to the requirement and comfort of the inhabitants. Thereby depending on the suitability; plan layout of beams and the position of columns are fixed. Thereafter, the loads are calculated namely the dead loads, which depend on the unit weight of the materials used (concrete, brick) and the live loads, which according to the code IS:456-2000 and HYSD BARS FE415 as per IS:1786-1985. Safe bearing capacity of soil is adopted as 350KN/M2 at a depth of 6ft and same soil should extent 1.5 times the width of footing below the base of footing. Footings are designed based on the safe bearing capacity of soil. For designing of columns and beams, it is necessary to know the moments they are subjected to. For this purpose, frame analysis is done by limit state method. Designing of slabs depends upon whether it is a one - way or a two way slab, the end conditions and the loading. From the slabs, the loads are transferred to the beam. Thereafter, the loads (mainly shear) from the beams are taken by the columns. Finally, the sections must be checked for all the four components with regard to strength and serviceability.
