Performance of a RC Building using Site Specific Ground Motion Parameter of Salt Lake Sector-V Region, Kolkata, India

Performance of a RC Building using Site Specific Ground Motion Parameter of Salt Lake Sector-V... This work presents the performance of a G+3 storey RC building using site specific response spectra at Maximum Considered Earthquake (MCE) condition of Salt Lake sector V, Kolkata, India, situated on the world’s largest delta island with very soft and thick soil deposit in the surficial layer. A comparison has been made with the codal response spectra [IS 1893 (Part-I):2002] and site specific response spectra of the performance of a G+3 storey building designed according to IS codes and analyzed by nonlinear static procedure. The results of simulated nonlinear behavior of the building during MCE earthquake depicts that the building without masonry infill is safe if it is designed as per IS 1893 (Part I):2002 (assuming soft soil) response spectra as well as using site specific response spectra. However, the building with masonry infill (except ground floor) may not be safe due to soft storey effect during code specified as per MCE. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

This work presents the performance of a G+3 storey RC building using site specific response spectra at Maximum Considered Earthquake (MCE) condition of Salt Lake sector V, Kolkata, India, situated on the world’s largest delta island with very soft and thick soil deposit in the surficial layer. A comparison has been made with the codal response spectra [IS 1893 (Part-I):2002] and site specific response spectra of the performance of a G+3 storey building designed according to IS codes and analyzed by nonlinear static procedure. The results of simulated nonlinear behavior of the building during MCE earthquake depicts that the building without masonry infill is safe if it is designed as per IS 1893 (Part I):2002 (assuming soft soil) response spectra as well as using site specific response spectra. However, the building with masonry infill (except ground floor) may not be safe due to soft storey effect during code specified as per MCE.
