Seismic Non-Linear Time History Analysis of Multi Storied RCC Residential Building Subjected to Different Earthquake Ground Motions using ETABS
Seismic analysis of reinforced Concrete (RCC) buildings are one of the research interests nowadays and it is
because of, earthquake causes lots of damage and losses with respect to life and damage of structures. The present study is
limited to reinforced concrete multi-storied residential building under influence of three different earthquake ground motions.
In this study, a nonlinear time history analysis is performed on eight storey RCC building frame considering time history of
Landers earthquake 1992, Kobe earthquake 1995 and ChiChi earthquake 1999 using ETABS software. Analysis also
performed to study the behavior of building under the seismic and gravity loads as per the IS-1893:2002. All analysis are
compared for outcomes such as storey displacements and base shears. From the study it is recommended that analysis of
multistoried RCC building using Time History method becomes necessary to ensure safety against earthquake force.
