This chapter describes the analytical performance of the behavior of G+6 storied building when it is subjected to seismic loading in hard rock or hilly terrain region in Zone ?. The method of analysis performed is Linear Dynamic method of analysis in STAAD Pro, where analysis of any type of structure can be done easily. This method is also known as Response Spectrum analysis. This approach permits the multiple modes of response of a building to be taken into consideration (in the frequency domain). All Structural parameters are kept constant only by varying the Slope and Plan Orientation with Respect to the Flat Surface with Global Direction of propagation of the seismic wave.
3.2 Response Parameters calculation as per IS 1893:2002
The Response spectrum analysis, one of the most widely used dynamic analysis procedures to analysis a building. While the performing response spectrum analysis in STAAD Pro, the design lateral forces at each floor and in each mode is calculated by STAAD in Accordance with the IS:1893(part 1): 2002
Qik = Ak * ?ik *Pk * Wi (from clause 188.8.131.52c and 184.108.40.206d)
Ak = Design’ horizontal acceleration spectrum value as per 6.4.’2 using the natural period of vibration (Tk ) of mode k.
Step 1: The value of Ak and Wi has to be defined by user.
Ahk =Z I Sa2 R g Where
Z = Zone factor, From Table 2 (clause 6.4.2)
I = Importance Factor, From Table 6 (clause 6.4.2)
Sa/g = Average response acceleration coefficient for rock or soil sites as given by Fig 2. From Table 3 based on appropriate natural period and damping of structure (clause 6.4.2)
R= Response reduction factor, From Table 7 (clause 6.4.2)
g = acceleration due to gravity
The design horizontal seismic coefficient Ah for various modes are calculated from above and input is given as STAAD parameter in definition command.
STAAD uses the following procedure to generate the lateral seismic loads
We have to specify the value for Z/2 x I/R as factor for input spectrum, and then the program calculates the time period. By default STAAD calculates first six modes of vibrations unless specified.
Then the program calculates Sa/g value for each mode utilizing time period and damping for each mode
Then the program calculates the design horizontal acceleration spectrum Ak for different modes.
Step 2: And ?ik , Pk values are calculated by STAAD .
For the mode participation factor for different mode of vibrations and peak lateral seismic force at each floor in each mode is ascertained. All response quantities for each mode are calculated.
Where as in Response spectrum analysis, the peak response quantities are obtained by using following methods as per IS: 1893(part1):2002
Square root of sum of squares (SRSS)
Complete quadratic combination (CQC)
The peak response quantities like member forces, displacements, storey forces, storey shears and base reactions are combined as per Complete Quadratic Combination (CQC) method.
r = Number of modes being considered,
?? = Cross-modal coefficient,
?i = Response quantity in mode i (including sign), and
?j = Response quantity in mode i (including sign).
??=8?2(1+?)?1.5(1+?2)2+4?2?(1+?)2 ? = Modal damping ratio (in fraction) as specified in 220.127.116.11,
? = Frequency ratio = ? / ?i
?i = Circular frequency in ith mode, and
?j = Circular frequency in jth mode.
Alternatively, the peak response quantities may be combined as follows
If the building does not have closely-spaced modes, then the peak response quantity (?) due to all modes considered shall be obtained as
?k = Absolute value of quantity in mode k
r = Number of modes being considered.
If the building has a few closely-spaced modes, then the peak response quantity (?*) due to these modes shall be obtained as
Where the summation is for the closely-spaced modes only. This peak response quantity due to the closely spaced modes (?*) is then combined with those of the remaining well-separated modes by the method described in 18.104.22.168 (a).
Step 3: The modal mass (Mk) of mode k is given by
g = Acceleration due to gravity,
?ik = Mode shape coefficient at floor i in mode k
Wi = Seismic weight of floor i.
Step 4: Modal Participation Factors (Pk ) of mode k is given by:
Storey Shear Force in Each mode – The peak shear force ( Vik ) acting in storey i in mode k is given by
Lateral Forces at Each Storey Due to All Modes Considered – The design lateral forces. Froof and Fi at roof and at floor i:
