This project deals about the structural analysis and design of conference hall building considering all the external effects according to EBCS, 1995. Structural design is very essential to many civil engineering works to assure safety and economy of the structure. In structural design of reinforced concrete structures, the type and amount of reinforcements for a given architectural cross section will be determined, the concrete section for its capacity and serviceability limit should be checked. Moreover structural design should satisfy both ultimate limit states and serviceability limit states as per our building code EBCS, 1995.
The project consists of seven chapters and the contents are explained below; The first chapter deals about the wind load analysis and design on roof truss and roof slabs. The external wind pressure coming from different directions were collected and transferred to frames according to EBCS, 1995. There are two methods for wind load analysis namely quasi static method and dynamic analysis. Since our building height is less than 200m and Cd is less than 1.2 we use quasi static method for analysis. In addition, we design corbel for truss hence the building is huge and the truss span is long.
The second chapter deals about analysis and design of slab and stair case. Slab is two dimensional member used to transfer load to beam or column. Slab may be classified in to two based on load transferring mechanism and span length. One way slab and two way slab. One way slab transmit load in one direction and designed as a beam while two way slab transmits load in two direction. The design of slab is based on EBCS 1995, provision. The third chapter deals about frame modeling and analysis. It helps us to know load transfer to structural members beam and column by using computer software ETABS. The fourth talks about beam and column analysis and design. Beams are structural elements used to transfer load from slab to the column and column also transfer load to the foundation. Analysis and design of foundation also discussed on chapter five. Footing design is based on load from the super structure. Chapter six discuses about retaining wall and drainage structures. Retaining wall retains soil for the basement. Under the building there is a ditch used to drain water from the surrounding and underground. The last chapter deals about access road design. It gives access to get the conference hall.
