Enclosed Structure; Constructions Work; Developing Countries: Burnt Clay Bricks; Cellular Lightweight Concrete; Earthquake Forces


A building could be defined as an enclosed structure designed for human occupancy. Constructions work have been seen in almost all over the countries. In the construction industry, as there is an increase in material cost, there is a need to find more cost saving alternative materials, so as to maintain the cost of construction which can be afforded by people. In the inventing of burnt clay bricks, smoke exhibited at an extent and also some toxic gases evolve which will be harmful to an environment. So as to overcome with all the issues, Cellular lightweight concrete blocks have been used which is more economical and eco-friendly. This project present an analysis and comparison of G+3 residential building by using Cellular lightweight concrete blocks at the replacement of burnt clay bricks. Analysis is made by using burnt clay bricks and Cellular lightweight concrete blocks for different densities. Overall modelling and analysis was done by using STAAD-Provi8 software. By using cellular lightweight blocks the overall cost of construction will be reduced and it will ensure the safety and economical condition in earthquake forces also.
