Seismic Design of Structures projects


The project objective was to design and control a multi-story reinforced concrete special moment resisting frames from scratch. Firstly, the building was modeled and analyzed by ETABS. Afterward, the obtained analysis results were used for manual design of beams, columns, shear walls and connections using ACI codes. Using NEHRP guidelines and provisions, additional controls were also taken into consideration such as reinforcement detailing in beams and columns, joint shear control and loading capacity control, to name but a few.
