Design provisions for soft storey buildings.
Earthquake reconnaissance reports of past earthquakes shown that wall infill has significant effect on the performance of the structures. Many of the buildings which were not designed as per the seismic demand had performed satisfactorily because of infill wall. Past research done in the field of brick infill clearly shows that the stiffness and ductility of the structure increases significantly because of brick infills. On the other hand, brick infill may have negative effect introducing torsion, soft storey, weak storey and short column effects, because of irregularity in the location of brick infill horizontally and vertically. Open ground storey construction practice is most common now-a-days, preferred by Architects. As it has many functional and aesthetic advantages in multi-storeys, schools, hotels and commercial buildings. It has been recognized by structural engineers, that this architectural practice will do severe damage in the structural and non-structural element of the ground storey and sometimes leads to total collapse of structure.
