A Novel Approximate Method for Analysis of High-Rise building Frames

Authors(2) :-Dipak J Varia, Dr. Harshvadan S Patel

Statically Indeterminate structures that can more frequently occur in practice than the statically determinate ones are more economical because of their higher strength and stiffness. The choice between statically determinate and statically indeterminate structure depends on to largely the purpose for which a particular structure is required. These days, practically all major buildings are framed structures. Rigid jointed reinforced concrete frames are mostly used for High-Rise buildings, industrial structures, multilevel parking structures etc. The rigid High- rise building frames made with beam-column joints can resist bending moment, shear and axial forces, thus resulting in a highly indeterminate structure. Analysis of frame is possible through Kani’s method or matrix methods, but solution by iteration or equation solving or matrix inversion process is tedious and time consuming for several loading cases. For quick analysis, design engineers use the approximate methods of analysis. The authors evolved novel approximate method is very useful to design engineers because substitute frame can quickly analyze with almost 90 to 95 % accuracy in comparison to exact analysis.The analysis steps are demonstrated with substitute frame example.
