Repairs and Seismic Strengthening of Buildings

Repairs and Seismic Strengthening of Buildings General Principles and Concepts Non-structural/Architectural Repairs The buildings affected by the earthquake may suffer both non-structural and structural damages. Non-structural repairs may cover the damages to civil and electrical

Basic Aspects of Seismic Design

Basic Aspects of Seismic Design The mass of the building being designed controls seismic design in addition to the building stiffness, because earthquake induces inertia forces that are proportional to the building mass. Designing buildings

Structural Designing

Structural Designing Process and Methods There are typically two types of design; simple design and rigid design. Simple Design: This method designs structures, which have connections that do not restrain moments. The following assumptions are

Releasing of Load From the Beam

Releasing of Load From the Beam When the RCC beams are under loaded condition, if we add a layer of new concrete in the compressive zone the load due to self weight of the new

Structural Strengthening of RCC Members Using CFRP

Structural Strengthening of RCC Members Using CFRP Normally RCC buildings have an average life span life of about Fifty years under the normal conditions. In many situations we are facing structural issues due to various

Necessity of Providing RC Structural slabs and Beams

Necessity of Providing RC Structural slabs and Beams We can analysis here the Necessity of Providing RC Structural slabs and Beams at Plinth level (GF-Finished Floor Level). Wherever low/poor bearing capacity soils met with, the

Design Procedure Rectangular and T-shape Beam

Design Procedure Rectangular and T-shape Beam Beams can be described as members that are mainly subjected to flexure and it is essential to focus on the analysis of bending moment,  shear,  and deflection. When the bending moment acts on the beam,  bending strain  is produced.  The
