Concrete is the material that has been popularly used in building construction particularly over the last four decades. Cement concrete is made of crushed stone pieces (called aggregates), sand, cement and water mixed in appropriate proportions. Concrete is much stronger than masonry under compressive loads, but again its behavior in tension is poor. The properties of concrete critically depend on the amount of water used in making concrete; too much too little water, both can cause havoc. In general, both masonry and concrete are brittle, and fall suddenly. Steel is used in masonry and concrete buildings as reinforcement bars of diameter from 6mm to 40mm. reinforcing steel can carry both tensile and compressive loads. Moreover , steel is a ductile material. This important property of ductility enables steel bars to undergo large elongation before breaking. Concrete is used in buildings along with steel reinforcement bars. This complete material is called reinforced cement concrete or simply reinforced concrete (RC). The amount and location of steel in a member should be such that the failure of the member is by steel reaching its strength in tension before concrete reaches its strength in compression. This type of failure is ductile failure, and hence is preferred over a failure where concrete fails first in compression. Therefore, contrary to common thinking, providing too much steel in RC buildings can be harmful even. By using the routine design codes (meant for design against non-earthquake effects), designers may not be able to achieve a ductile structure. Special design provisions are required to help designers improve the ductility of the structure. Such provisions are usually put together in the form of a special seismic design code, e.g., IS:13920-1993 for RC structure. These codes also ensure that adequate ductility is provided in the members where damage is expected.

12.2 Beams

Beams in RC buildings have two sets of steel reinforcement, namely: (a) long straight bars (called longitudinal bars) placed along its length, and (b) closed loops of small diameter steel bars (called stirrups) placed vertically at regular intervals along its full length. Designing a beam involves the selection of its material properties (i.e. grades of steel bars and concrete) and shape and size; these are usually selected as a part of an overall design strategy of the whole building. And, the amount and distribution of steel to be provided in the beam must be determined by performing design calculation as per IS 456:2000 and IS 13920:1993. The Indian ductile detailing code IS 13920:1993 prescribes that:a. At least two bars go through the full length of the beam at the top as well as the bottom of the beam. b. At the ends of the beams, the amount of steel provided at the bottom is at least half at that at top.

The IS 13920:1993 prescribes the following requirements related to stirrups in R.C.C. beams. (a) The diameter of stirrups must be at least 6mm; in beams more than 5m long, it must be atleast 8mm.
(b) Both ends of the vertical stirrup should be bent into a 1350 hook and extended sufficiently

beyond this hook to ensure that the stirrup does not open out in an earthquake. (c) The spacing of vertical stirrups in any portion of the beam should be determined from calculations. (d) The maximum spacing of stirrup is less than half the depth of the beam. (e) For a length of twice the depth of the beam from the face of the column, and even more stringent spacing of stirrups is specified, namely half the spacing mention in (d). The IS 13920:1993 prescribes that laps of longitudinal bars in beams:(a) Made away from the face of the column, and (b) Not made at locations where they are likely to stretch by large amounts and yield. Moreover, at the locations of laps, vertical stirrups should be provided at a closer spacing.

The Indian Standard IS 13920:1993 prescribes following details for earthquake-resistant columns. (a) Closely spaced ties must be provided at the two ends of the column over a length not less than larger dimension of the column, one-sixth the column height or 450mm. (b) Over the distance specified in item (a) above and below a beam-column junction, the vertical spacing of ties in columns should not exceed D/4 for where D is the smallest dimension of the column (e.g., in a rectangular column, D is the length of the small side). This spacing need not be less than 75mm nor more than 100mm. At other locations, ties are spaced as per calculations but not more than D/2.
(c) The length of tie beyond the 1350 bends must be at least 10 times diameter of steel bar used

to make the closed tie; this extension beyond the bend should not be less than 75mm.

This project aims at the structural design of a multistoried office cum commercial building in Guwahati City. The first phase of the project was to plan a building according to the existing Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) bye-laws. The planning of the building has been done to arrange the location of various rooms and their sizes so that it fulfills the functional requirements of the intended purpose. After the planning stage, estimation of the various loads, viz. gravity and seismic loads are carried out. During this stage, analysis has been done by approximate methods such has moment distribution and portal methods to yield the various bending moments, shear forces and axial loads acting at the various section at different levels. The result of these computations are then subjected to load combination procedure, the main objective of which is to give the worst combination that can be accepted as the design values i.e. that values for which the various components of the structure has to be designed. The design phase consisted of designing of the various components that constitutes the structure such as beams, columns, slabs, staircases, chajja/sunshade, lintels and footing. The final output is in the form of reinforcement detailing of the various constituent parts as they are essential for the execution of the actual construction work. Ductile detailing has been incorporated as per IS 13920 : 1993

There is immense scope of future study in the field of Structural Design of Multistoreyed Building that has been dealt with in this project work. These include Study of the cost estimate. 3-D Seismic Analysis with the aid of computer programming. Use of ready-made computer package programs for analysis, design, plotting, detailing and specification writing.
