Evaluation of the Codal Provisions for Asymmetric Buildings

Bhatt, Nikhilesh (2015) Evaluation of the Codal Provisions for Asymmetric Buildings. MTech thesis.



The research on asymmetric buildings has b een extensive prim arily fo cusing on the stability of a structure whe n sub jected to earthquake. Based on the m numerous guidelines have b een laid out for to ensure safety. I have in this pap er tried to evaluate the effectiveness of the guidelines provided in the IS: 1893 (2000). Asymmetric buildings are more common now than they have ever been and their popularity has been growing primarily due to the functionality they provide. Due to the frequent earthquakes that India suffers being at the junction of two tectonic plates it has become increasingly important to study Indian buildings for seismic safety. The buildings are analyzed based on the effect of torsion which is the main cause of damage for Asymmetric Buildings.
