Analysis of industrialized building system block work with ETABS

Rahmat, Maziar Ghabel (2013) Analysis of industrialized building system block work with ETABS. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Civil Engineering.



Recently the application of IBS components in construction of many civil engineering projects is accelerating due to its simplicity for fabrication and saving in cost and time of construction process. This study is a software analysis of wall block work where the wall is non-load bearing infill. Hence, the concrete used in block works is normal weight concrete. The wall investigated here can be used as infill for structures up to 10 stories or 35 meter height. ETABS nonlinear version 9.1.4 is utilized, in order to model and analyze to investigate the behaviour of the system of block works under applied vertical loads. The loads applied are two vertical loads of 420 KN which are placed in 1 meter from each face of the columns. The models have been tested in full scale in the laboratory by other researcher in Faculty of Civil Engineering. After analyzing the system, the results obtained are shown in proportional sketches. It includes the study of the stresses, deflection, mechanisms of failure and deformation shapes of assembling multiple frame cut-off components that suit industrial dimension to be fitted for industrialize building system.
