Seismic Analysis of Irregular RC Structure with Cross-Bracing System

Authors(2) :-Rohan Chavan, Prachi Sohoni

Steel bracing system is one of the most suitable methods for improvement of reinforced concrete structures against lateral loading. Bracing systems is very efficient in reducing lateral displacements by increasing stiffness and strength. In proposed problem G+11 story irregular RC buildings are analysed with and without cross bracing system, which is one of the best of concentric bracing systems. Non-linear time history analysis is carried out in order to find out response of structure for various ground motions. ETABS 2016 software is used for analysis purpose. The performance of the building is evaluated in terms of story drifts, lateral displacements, bending moments, axial forces and base shear.
