Satellite Bus Stop, Multi-Story Building


Generally RC framed high rise structures are designed without regards to structural action of masonry infill walls present. Masonry infill walls are widely used as partitions. They are considered as non- structural elements. RC frame building with open first storey is known as soft storey, a similar soft storey effect can also appear, at intermediate storey level if a storey used as a service storey. The soft storey located in the lower part of the high rise building especially the first storey is very undesirable as it attracts severely large seismic forces. In satellite bus stops the ground soft story is of double height than the normal buildings and have sufficiently larger spans for movement of buses, so the effect will be more. At the same time, the soft storey located in the upper part of the high rise building does not significantly affect the performance compared to the performance of the fully infill frame.
