Projects Overview

Project 1

Highlights

Buildings oscillate during earthquake shaking. The oscillation causes inertia force to be induced in the building. The intensity and duration of oscillation, and the amount of inertia force induced in a building depend on the dynamic characteristics of the building, in addition to the characteristics of the earthquake shaking (beyond the control of an engineer) itself. The important dynamic characteristics of buildings are modes of oscillation and damping (assumed constant in most practical cases). A mode of oscillation of a building is defined by associated Natural Period of Vibration and associated Deformed Shape in which it oscillates. 

The project will shed light on various fundamental factors influencing the dynamic characteristics of a multi-storey building, using ETABS program. Moreover, by modelling several simple structures in ETABS, hands-on training in the software will also be imparted.

 

Project 2

Highlights

Architectural drawings will be provided. An efficient load path will be have to be carved out using basic principles of conceptual design for earthquake resistance. The conceptual design of the structure will be followed by analysis for the design load combinations as per IS 1893. Finally, detailed design of individual structural elements will be carried out, as per IS 13920.


Complete analysis and design of RCC building in zone 5 is to be performed. The challenge will teach participants how to model structural systems using etabs software, extract output from the program and draft construction drawings. This skill is highly desired at the entry level in any design firm.
