Comparative study of a G+10 storied building using ETABS and STAAD

Authors(2) :-Ramanand Shukla, Prithwish Saha

Reinforced Concrete building structures are stretching their arms in the vertical direction with the growing demand of urban population. Plan dimensions have limited scope of expansion; hence it is obvious that the high-rise structures are getting popular among the designers round the word. This selection is also getting reinforced due to the invention of high strength materials, improved workmanship, excellent superior real-time model analysis data and several high efficient finite element analytical and design software packages, such as Staad Pro, ETABS, and SAP2000 etc. STAAD and ETABS both of the software are well equipped and very much capable of handling different shape of the structures, static and dynamic loadings and different material properties. In the present paper analysis of a G+10 storied building having a very simple plan dimension in both STAAD Pro and ETABS is carried out. The present study is mainly limited to the basic comparison between their analytical results under vertical loadings. The study then further extended and horizontal load is applied and the plan position of lift wall (shear wall) is optimized in terms of developed horizontal base shear at different support positions. Among different plan positions, it was found that the model with a centrally placed shear wall is most efficient in terms of handling the base shear.
