Evaluating the effects of seismic loading on concrete reinforced versus precast concrete slab floor systems
Date of Award
This thesis is part of the senior design capstone project of Ole Miss Department of Civil Engineering. The seismic loadings for the commercial buildings project located in Oxford, Mississippi are evaluated to fulfill the honor thesis requirement. This thesis follows the codes from American Concrete Institute (ACI), International Building Code (IBC), and ASCE-7/SEI (Minimum Design Loads and Associated Criteria for Buildings and Other Structures/Structural Engineering Institute) to design the gravitational loadings and seismic loadings.
Furthermore, a reinforced concrete slab flooring system is replaced with a precast slab flooring system to analyze the most seismic performance effective floor system for the building. Both structural systems are analyzed using SAP 2000. Also, a cost analysis is executed to estimate the price difference and to select suitable flooring systems.
