Dynamic Analysis of A Building With And Without Floating Columns

Konda Bala Chandra, J.V. Subba Rao


The beam which support the column acts as a foundation, is nothing but the floating column resting on the beam. That beam is called as transfer beam. This is widely used in high storied buildings which is used for both commercial and residential purpose. This helps to alter the plan of the top floors to our convenience. The transfer beam that support floating column will be designed with more reinforcement. Earthquakes in different parts of the world demonstrated the hazardous consequences and vulnerability of inadequate structures. In present scenario buildings with floating column is a typical feature in the modern multistory construction in urban India. The floating column which is at its lower level resting on a beam is a vertical element. The present objective this work is to compare the behavior of High-rise Building with and without floating columns. The parametric Studies comparison   of Maximum  Storey Displacement,  Maximum  Storey Drift generated in High-rise Building with and without floating columns Using ResponseSpectrumAnalysisin ETABS Software.
