Chowdary, Kilari Suresh (2014) Effect of diaphragm discontinuity in the seismic response of multi-storeyed building. MTech thesis.
Many buildings in the present scenario have irregular configurations both in elevation and plan. This in future may subject to devastating earthquakes. It is necessary to identify the performance of the structures to withstand against disaster for both new and existing buildings. Now a days openings in the floors is common for many reasons like stair cases, lighting architectural etc., these openings in diaphragms cause stresses at discontinues joints with building elements. Discontinuous diaphragms are designed without stress calculations and are thought-about to be adequate ignoring any gap effects. In this thesis an attempt is made to try to know the difference between a building with diaphragm discontinuity and a building without diaphragm discontinuity.
