PERFORMANCE BASED ANALYSIS OF RCC BUILDING
Keywords:Pushover Analysis, non-linear static analysis, performance based seismic design, SAP2000.
Performance Based Seismic Engineering is the modern approach to earthquake resistant design. It is an
attempt to predict the buildings with predictable seismic performance. In one Sense, it is limit-states design extended to
cover complex range of issues faced by earthquake Engineers.
The analysis will be performed on new as well as existing R.C.C. buildings and the performance of buildings in future
earthquake will be obtained. Non Linear static analysis will be performed in existing as well as new buildings in finite
element program. It helps in the investigation of the behavior of the structure under different loading conditions, its load
deflection behavior and the cracks pattern.
In the present study, the non-linear response of RCC frame using finite element program under the loading has been
carried out with the intention to investigate the relative importance of several factors in the non-linear analysis of RCC
frames. This includes the variation in load displacement graph
