Study of Behavior of Seismic Evaluation of Multistoried Building with Floating Column

(M.Tech) Structural Engineering, Dept. of Civil Engineering
Associate Professor, Dept. of Civil Engineering Priyadarshini Institute of Technology & Management

- In present scenario buildings with floating column is a typical feature in the modern multi-storey construction in urban India. Such features are highly undesirable in a building built in seismically active areas .This paper aims to investigate the effect of a floating column under earthquake excitation for various soil conditions and as there is no provision or magnification factor specified in I.S. Code, hence the determination of such factors for safe and economical design of a building having floating column. Sometimes, to meet the requirements these type of aspects cannot be avoided though these are not found to be of safe. Hence, an attempt is taken to study the behavior of the building during the seismic activity. In this study, the seismic behavior of the RC multistory buildings with and without floating column is considered. The analysis is carried out for the multi-storey buildings of G+3 situated at zone iv , Using ETABS Software. Linear Dynamic Analysis is done for 2D multi storey frame with and without floating column to achieve the above aim i.e. the responses (effect) and factors for safe and economical design of the structure under different earthquake excitation.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
