Abstract: This study focuses on the planning and designing of a multistory building. Further, understanding the structural system of the designed building and its performance with respect to structural design forms an integral part of the study. While designing the building, certain material characteristics have been assumed and characteristics of the materials assumed in the design is verified for the suitability in the design. Assuming failure in one of the columns, retrofitting scheme have been suggested for the same, and also related tests are performed regarding the process of retrofitting by RC jacketing of short columns. A prototype of formwork system for jacketing has also been prepared for the same as an extension of this study.
