Comparative Study on Conventional, Shear Wall and Hybrid Structures Indifferent Seismic Zones
The rise in the demand and complexities of architectural aesthetics, conventional RC structures can no longer
suffice. The evolution in technology and resources of the construction industry has given rise to one such innovation of
hybrid structures, which combines the engineering of the Shear wall structures and the conventional RC structures.
In this study, a residential building (modeled as conventional Frame, Shear wall and hybrid structure) is evaluated for its
Dynamic performance under different seismic zones using ETABS (2016). The load considerations and Design conform to
IS 1893: 2016 PART I. The Storey Stiffness, Storey shear, Maximum Storey Drift and Maximum Story Displacement of the
three different models under different seismic zones are compared.
