Failure of single degree of freedom structure

1 post in this topic

The structure is located in the lawn of the Red fort in Muzaffarabad.

Probably, the seismic event caused the collapse.

Inadequate stiffness, lack of flexural strength and confinement in the area of plastic hinge are reasons for the collapse.

      Dear Members,
      I would like to have your feedback on the use of stiffness modifier. We generally use the value dictated by ACI committee as to model the cracked behavior, which are 
      Compression Member : Wall, Column, Pier = 0.7
      Flexure Member : Beam, Spandrels = 0.35
      Slab = 0.25
      What if i want to use 0.5 for columns or 0.2 for beams. Are there any restrictions. I have played around with it on software like ETABS and noticed change in flow of forces as it transfer towards more stiff element.  Your kind comments would be highly appreciated.

      I have made a frame. Lateral Point Load is applied on each storey. Attached is the picture of frame. Why shear force in internal column of frame is more in 1st storey as compared to bottom storey?
      Thank you all for the help

      I am pursuing my fyp on Performance of RC Beam Column joint with effects of steel strips as confinement.
      My advisor is a post-doc and is not feeding me the basics of it.
      I will  be performing a Quasi-static test and an Ansys model !
      Need some advices on online sources or any good books that I can use for development of concepts as it quite a task for me being a Ugrad..
      Thanks alot
