Influence of Masonary Infill on The Behaviour of RC Frames

Date of Publication :10th March 2017

Abstract: This paper presents the performance based design of RC frame with infill wall and their behavior during earthquake. In the present study the infilled frames are modeled as pin jointed strut elements. Pushover analysis is carried out both with default hinges as per FEMA 356 and ATC 40 guidelines and also with user defined non-linear hinge properties which is available in SAP 2000 software. For the present study four frames are modeled with strut elements with different young’s modulus and the frame is designed as per IS code for different load cases. The results reviewed based on the performance of the structure with the formation of hinges at various levels, differences in results of pushover analysis due to default and user-defined nonlinear component properties at different performance levels of the building where studied
