Progressive Collapse Analysis of Multi-Storied RCC Building

Authors(2) :-Yogesh T. Birajdar, Dr. Nagesh L. Shelke

The term "Progressive collapse" defined as ultimate failure or proportionality large failure of a portion of structure due to spread of local failure from element to element throughout the structure. I studied previous paper on progressive collapse, they have analyze multistory building and get result of prevention of progressive collapse since the progressive collapse of Ronan point apartment building in 1968 and world trade centre (WTC), and to give idea about constructing building safer from progressive collapse. To use of general service administration guidelines (GSA, 2003) three dimensional (3D) model of building were developed to analyze and compare progressive collapse response by commercially available program ETABS. In number of previous paper multistory building analyze for progressive collapse of linear static and linear dynamic procedure by STAAD pro and ETABS software, they result conclude that comparison of DCR ration in different cases and different column removed cases and also displacement, time period, storey shear are concluded. The objectives of project work is to study various types of progressive collapse and its mechanisms and analyze (G+15) RC earthquake resisting building for seismic zone III as per IS 1983:2002 by using ETABS 2016 software for linear dynamic analysis procedure. Complete the mathematical modeling of multistory building and different types of loading combination and to find out time period, axial forces variation, bending moment variation, DCR for column and beam in different cases, and knowing the response of the structure for progressive collapse by using ETABs software.
