Seismic analysis of irregular composite structures with shear connectors using ETABS

Authors(2) :-Muhammed Sabith K, Dr. Sabeena M. V.

In this paper, an attempt is made to study the effect of stud shear connector in composite structures and is compared with the conventional RCC structure. RCC and steel constructions have made incredible developments in India for the last decades. These concrete and steel constructions may undergo certain deteriorations due to some defect in material properties, weaker bond strength or subjected to overloading if years pass by. Here is where the shear connectors plays a major role in composite structures. This study is carried out on plan irregular structures with medium rise building of 10-storey. Modelling and analysis has been done to estimate the behavior of shear connector in plan irregular structures and is compared with RCC structures. Its variation with respect to RCC structure is found to choose a best construction method. The parameters considered are storey displacement, base shear, storey drift, stiffness, axial force in columns, shear force in beams and mass of the structure. The provisions of IS-11384 1985 is considered. The seismic behavior of these structures is evaluated by Response spectrum analysis with the help ETABS V 16. The result shows that the composite structures have bright future in India in the area of construction of any plan irregular structures.
