Ultra-High Rise Buildings, Building Design Codes


This study focuses on comparison of International standards. An Illustrative study of Seismic design and assessment of a High-Rise Structure using different International Codes is performed. The objective of this study is to investigate the differences caused by the use of different codes in the analysis of a High-Rise building. The parameters such as displacement, base shear, storey drift, time period, axial and shear forces, bending moments are studied to figure out the variations that occur while using different codes. An interest develops to carry out the seismic design of a high rise building using various codes to understand which codal provisions give effective designs to perform good during an earthquake crisis. This paper is intended to compare the design of High rise structure with different International codes. In R.C. buildings, frames are considered as main structural elements, which resist shear, moment and torsion effectively. These frames are subjected to variety of loads, where lateral loads are always predominant. The study of papers published so far helps in understanding the major contributing factors that lead to poor performance of Structures during an earthquake, so as to achieve their adequate safe behaviour under future earthquakes. A comparative analysis can be figured out in terms of Base shear, Displacement, Axial loads, Moments and Displacement.
