Parametric Study of R C Frames with Raft Foundation Considering Soil Structure Interaction

Authors(2) :-Dr. S. S. Patil, Dyawarkonda S. S.

In conventional method of design of raft foundation, base flexibility due to soil mass is ignored. The purpose of this study is, to understand the effect of soil flexibility on the performance of the building frames resting on raft foundation. The Soil Structure Interaction (SSI) study is carried out on symmetrical building space frame of 4bay in both x and y direction, for 10 storey(Model 1),15 storey (Model 2), 20 storey (Model 3) and 25 storey(Model 4) building frame with raft foundation under fixed base and flexible base condition. In this analysis three types of soil i.e. Hard soil, Medium hard soil and Soft Soil are used for soil structure interaction (SSI) study. The analysis carried out using Equivalent Static Method (ESM) in accordance with IS1893-2002. The soil flexibility is incorporated in the analysis by using Winkler approach ( Spring Model). SAP-2000 software. is used to model building frame for fixed base and flexible base. The effect of SSI on various structural parameters like beam moment, column moment and roof displacement are discussed. The comparison is made between fixed base and flexible base conditions.
