Seismic Behaviour of RCC Framed Structure with Different Bracing System

Authors(6) :-Bhavya V M, Priyanka N, Ranjitha G, Swathi G, Naveena MP, Ravichandra R

Structures in high seismic risk areas may be susceptible to severe damage in a major earthquake. For the variety of structures and possible deficiencies that arise, several retrofitting techniques can be considered. Bracing system is one of the retrofitting techniques and it provides an excellent approach for strengthening and stiffening existing building for lateral forces. Also, another potential advantage of this system is the comparatively small increase in mass associated with the retrofitting scheme since this is a great problem for several retrofitting techniques. The seismic performance of reinforced concrete (RC) building using steel bracings is investigated. A thirteen storey (G+12) building is analyzed for seismic zone III as per IS 1893 (Part1): 2002. Static behavior of the RC building without bracings and with different types of bracings is investigated. The effectiveness of various types of steel bracings in rehabilitating the thirteen storey building is studied. Displacement was found less for all braced frames. From the study it was concluded that the steel X bracings is more effective to resist lateral loads compared to forward and backward for steel bracings
