CE243B 1 Prof. Wallace CE243B - DESIGN AND RESPONSE OF RC STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS Problem Set #3: UBC-97 Design and Evaluation Due dates: (1) & (3) 2 May 2002 (4) 7 May 2002 For the four story reinforced concrete frame building given below, do the following for loads in the north-south direction: (1) Determine UBC-97 base shear, story forces, and summarize major design requirements to be satisfied (e.g., mass participation, drift limits, deformation compatibility). Use 150 psf dead load and 100 psf live load. Story heights are 15 ft for the first story, 13 ft for levels 2 through 4. Soil conditions are ±C². For other information, use the same information as given on HW#1. Note, we could also use FEMA 369 (NEHRP 2000 Provisions). (2) Create an appropriate 2D model of the system for design (use symmetry). Make appropriate assumptions for initial member sizes. Discuss potential shortcomings of using a 2D model for this building. Assume a fixed base. (3)
