1. Describe the procedure to carry out dynamic analysis to obtain the design Seismic force and its
distribution along the height of multistory building.
2. Explain the orthogonality of normal modes.
3. Explain the expressions used in finding the fundamental natural period of vibration of steel building
for moment resisting frames with brick infill panels, without brick in-fills, and with concrete and
masonry shear walls? A 20 storey R.C framed building has plan dimensions 15 m x 30 m. Height of
the building is 70 meter. Estimate its fundamental period of vibration if the building is un-braced,
and braced with in-filled brick masonry walls.
4. Explain the ductile detailing of Beam reinforcement with diagram as per IS code.
5. A ten-storey OMRF Building has plan dimensions as shown in figure. The storey height in 3.0 m. the
dead load per unit area of the floor, consisting of the floor slab, finishes, etc., is 4 kN/m2. Weight of
the partitions on the floor can be assumed to be 2 kN/m2. The intensity of live load on each floor is 3
kN/m2 and on the roof is 1.5 kN/m2. The soil below the foundation is hard and the building is located
in Delhi. Determine the seismic forces and shears at different floor levels.

6. List the major earthquakes in India and critically give the lesson learnt from them in detail (minimum
four major earthquakes.)
7. Explain the procedure to conduct a response spectrum analysis.
8. A 3-storey building in Seismic zone IV supported by soft soil and the seismic weights acting on it
shown in figure. The free vibration properties of this building are shown in table. Apply correction
factor. Determine the design seismic load on the structure by the using following method:

1st floor 0.340 -1.146 1.378
9. An eight stored RC framed building with the live load of 3 kN/m2 is to be constructed in Roorkee.
Work out seismic forces on the structure. All beams and columns may be assumed to be 300 x 400
mm and 500 x 500 mm respectively. The roof and floor slabs may be assumed as 150 mm thick. The
wall is all round 120 mm thick. Solve the problem using IS 1893:2002, equivalent static method,
assuming density of concrete 25 kN/m3 and density of wall 20 Kn/m3. Parapet wall is of 1.5m.
10. Consider the four-storey office building shown below, located in shillong (Seismic zone V). The soil
conditions are medium stiff, and entire building is supported on a raft foundation. The RC frames are
in-filled with brick masonry. The lumped weight due to dead loads is 12 kN/m2 on the floors and 10
kN/m2 on the roof. The floors carry a live load of 4 kN/m2 and the roof 1.5 kN/m2. Determine the
design seismic load on the structure by equivalent static method and dynamic method (modal
analysis). Obtain the design seismic force in the X-direction by the dynamic-analysis method and
distribute it with building height. Draw storey shear and lateral force distribution diagram. Apply
correction factor. Assume that the frames are steel moment resisting frames with R=5.
The free vibration properties of this building are shown in table below.
