Earthquake, RC Building, Response Spectrum, Rigid Slab


RC building having reinforced concrete slabs are considered to be rigid in analysis. The consideration of rigid slab helps in simplifying analysis procedure. Such building is termed as shear building as lateral forces due to earthquake is considered in analysis only for column shear. In present study, comparison of results for two such RC buildings with and without rigid slab modeling is performed. The results are for bending moment, lateral displacement and shear forces.
