The Finite Element Analysis of G 6 Steel Frame with and without Bracing Elements Performed using Staad
Nowadays the objectives of civil engineering is to design a building’s lateral resistance to wind and earthquake forces are to provide a system of shear walls, diaphragms, and interconnections to transfer lateral loads and overturning forces to the foundation, to prevent building collapse in extreme wind and seismic events and to provide adequate stiffness to the structure for service loads experienced in moderate wind and seismic events. In modern life styles people requirements also modern and different to fulfill and also scarcity of land to construct preferring high raised building with proper facilities. The high raised multi storey buildings having height is more than 30 meters. These using for different purposes like residential, educational institutes, commercial, healthcare and storage power generation etc. from the past few years the many structures are damaged and collapsed by earthquake, it shows that need of seismic adequacy for the existing building structures. The behavior of high rise structural systems is dominated by lateral forces induced due to wind and earthquake actions. Hence the structural system consists of elements introduced mainly to resist lateral forces. In such cases stiffness rather than strength dominates the design of tall buildings. The steel braced frame is one of the structural systems used to resist lateral loads in multi storied buildings. Bracings ar usually provided to increases stability and stiffness of the structure under lateral loading. This also reduces lateral displacement significantly.
