Effect Of Shear Wall Area On Seismic Behavior Of Multistoried Building With Soft Storey At Ground Floor

Samudrala Srivani Padma Priyanka, K.Kartheek Babu, Chapala Venkataramana


The advances in three-dimensional structural analysis and computing resources have allowed the efficient and safe design of taller structures. These structures are the consequence of increasing urban densification and economic viability. The trend towards progressively taller structures has demanded a shift from the traditional strength based design approach of buildings to a focus on constraining the overall motion of the structure. Now a day’s reinforced concrete (RC) wall-frame buildings are widely recommended for urban construction in areas with high seismic hazard. Presence of shear walls imparts a large stiffness to the lateral force resisting system of the RC building.
