RC Building, Earthquake


An earthquake is the result of a sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. This results in enormous seismic vibrations that travel through bedrock. As the energy of the earthquake travels in waves through the ground, certain frequencies of vibration retain more energy than others depending on the mechanical properties of the surrounding soil. Every building has a fundamental frequency (usually between 5 and 0.833 Hertz) that often falls within the range of seismic frequencies. Conventional seismic design attempts to make buildings that do not collapse under strong earthquake shaking, but may sustain damage to non-structural elements and to some structural members in the building. This research investigated seismic response of building structures with fixed base and isolated base with and without effect of infill wall. Lead rubber bearings for base isolation is considered in this study. Response spectrum method is used for creating model and nonlinear analysis is carried out. Structure with seismic zone variation is created.
