Comparative Seismic Analysis of RCC,Steel & Steel-Concrete Composite Frame

Pandey, Rahul (2014) Comparative Seismic Analysis of RCC,Steel & Steel-Concrete Composite Frame. BTech thesis.



Steel-Concrete composite constructions are nowadays very popular owing to their advantages over conventional Concrete and Steel constructions. Concrete structures are bulky and impart more seismic weight and less deflection whereas Steel structures instruct more deflections and ductility to the structure, which is beneficial in resisting earthquake forces. Composite Construction combines the better properties of both steel and concrete along with lesser cost, speedy construction, fire protection etc. Hence the aim of the present study is to compare seismic performance of a 3D (G+7) storey RCC, Steel and Composite building frame situated in earthquake zone V. All frames are designed for same gravity loadings. The RCC slab is used in all three cases. Beam and column sections are made of either RCC, Steel or Steel-concrete composite sections. Equivalent static method and Response Spectrum method are used for seismic analysis. SAP 2000 software is used and results are compared. Cost effectiveness based on material cost for all types of building frames is determined. Comparative study concludes that the composite frames are best suited among all the three types of constructions in terms of material cost benefit added with better seismic behavior.
