Performance of RC Frame Buildings with Infill Using UPBD Method
Panna Lal Kurmi,  Satyabrata Choudhury
In the present paper, Unified Performance-Based Design (UPBD) of RC infilled frame buildings has been studied. The UPBD method (Choudhury and Singh)  enables the designer to design for both drift and performance level simultaneously in displacement-based design of RC frame buildings without incorporating infill strut elements. The performance objectives of the buildings are selected in terms of interstorey drift ratio (IDR) and member performance level. The selected target performance objectives are: 1% IDR with Immediate Occupancy (IO) performance level, 2% IDR with Life Safety (LS) performance level, and 3% IDR with Collapse Prevention (CP) performance level. A comparative study of performanceshas been carried out between RC frame buildings without incorporating infill strut and the corresponding RC frame buildings with infill strut elements, both designed using UPBD method. The buildings have been modeled using SAP2000 V 15.0 software . The performance parameters have been evaluated by performing Nonlinear Time History Analysis (NLTHA) for the both RC frame buildings without infill strut and RC frame buildings with infill strut elements.
