Consider a four-storey reinforced concrete ( O M R F ) o f f i c e building plan is as shown in Fig.Q.No. 15(a). The building floors are at 3m c/c. The building is located at Pune. The s o i l c o n d i t i o n is hard and the entire building is supported on a raft foundation. The R. C. frames are infilled w i t h brick-masonry. The lumped weight due to dead loads is 1 5 k N / m on floors and 10 k N / m on the roof. The floors are -to cater for a live load -of 4.5 k N / m o n floors and 2 k N / m on the roof. Determine design seismic Joad on the structure as per IS 1893 :2002 and distribute the earthquake load along the-height o f the building. 2 2 2 2 y 4.5 m 4.5 m 5.5 m 5.5 m — • x 4 bays @5m c/c Plan o f the building Fig.Q.No. 15(a) OR Write Short notes on i.
