The Impact of Bracing Type on the Global Displacement of Reinforced Concrete Buildings

Yassine Razzouk, Mohamed Ahatri, Khadija Baba and Ahlam El Majid

Abstract

Bracing systems have been used for decades to improve the structural integrity of buildings against seismic risks, by having the appropriate rigidity and ductility, depending on the type of structure and the area of construction, especially in areas with high seismic risk, such as the North of Morocco. The goal of this study is to analyze and compare the three types of bracings – columns, shear walls, and combined – under a normalized earthquake as defined by the Moroccan seismic regulation (RPS 2000 revised in 2011), as well as under a real earthquake as recorded at the ZGH station, which is located in Zeghanghane near the town of Nador, Morocco. Structures of different story heights (2-story, 4-story, 6-story, 8-story, and 10-story) have been used to study these three types of bracings, using finite element software.
