Abstract

During the past twenty years, different components of the building made by Fiber Reinforced Polymers are
used. It has good resistance to corrosion in aggressive environmental conditions, good fatigue strength, high strength to
weight ratio and the capability to mould into any shape of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites makes GFRG or
Glass Fiber Reinforced Gypsum as an alternative to conventional construction materials. The panels made from Glass
Fiber Reinforced Gypsum has high flexural property. So, it is necessary to study the structural behavior of buildings
made with GFRG Panels. In this project, a comparative study is made for an RCC structure and a GFRG structure. The
maximum storey displacement as well as the base shear of these two models are analyzed and compared using linear
static method of analysis. It has been observed that GFRG building is better in terms of seismic performance.
