Abstract: India population is increasing year by year and most of the land is highly productive and yielding three crops per a year , in that situation land acquisition has become quite expensive and housing cost goes on increasing, to solve this problem need to go for construction of High rise buildings. Nowa-days High rise buildings are a worldwide architectural phenomenon. To reduce the load on foundation we need to use lightweight materials. This project aims to carrying out seismic response of the high rise building with conventional brick and light weight brick. In this project a high rise office building of G+14 with plan dimensions of 19.2 m x 20.4 m and height 47.6m is considered for the analysis purpose using ETABS. Today, high rise buildings are a worldwide architectural phenomenon. The time require for calculating the load combination on them crave lot of time. The study includes understanding the main consideration factor that leads the structure to perform badly during earthquake in order to achieve their approx. behaviour under future earthquake. The main motive of this project is to scrutiny of a G+14 structure using ETABS. For greater height buildings, seismic load plays a vital role in both structural and safety considerations. The performance of the building is analysed for conventional bricks and light weight bricks. The comparison of obtained results for conventional and light weight bricks is done. The dynamic properties of this greater structures using with and without light weight bricks are investigated when subjected to lateral loading. loadings. It is observed that in case of lightweight bricks time period has increased, base shear is reduced and storey drift increases more at the base and less at the top.
Keywords: Dynamic Properties, lateral loading, structural safety, shear.
