Comparative Seismic Analysis of Multi Storey Building with Flat Slab and Conventional Grid Slab

December 25, 2017


This analysis is to assess the comparative seismic behavior of multi storey building with flat slab and conventional grid slab. In this seismic analysis of a 15 storey building is performed with response spectrum method for medium soil in the all four seismic zones of India according to the Indian code of earthquake resistant structures. In this analysis storey drift, base shear and column force is assessed with the help of STAAD Pro software.
