Abstract

Earthquakes are one of the most dangerous natural phenomena on the planet. Seismic waves throughout the ground will destroy structures, cost lives, and cost huge sums of money in losses and repairs. When these seismic waves penetrate the soil layer, their properties are greatly affected. The effect of the relation between the superstructure and the primary soil are not taken into account in conventional foundation layout techniques. The majority of the time, work is under the assumption that the basis is fix. For building design for hard soil, it is appropriate to ignore the impact of soil structure interaction. However, avoiding SSI has incredible effect on structural reaction and construction for a building built on either soft or medium soil. When abnormalities are found in a structure, various frameworks are used to reduce seismic reaction. Buckling Restrained Braced (BRB) are one such choice. In this study, a ten-storey vertically symmetric RC building is connected to a two-storey X shape BRB. The building’s reaction can be studied in variety of soil conditions, including soft and medium. The impact of soil-structure interaction will be compared with the results obtained when the structure is assumed to be fixed at the base. ETABS Programming can be used to analyses various parameters such as a storey displacement, storey drift, and overturning moment in order to determine seismic execution. The structure’s reaction can be determined using various research methods such as the Equivalent Static Force Method (ESFM), Response Spectrum Method (RSM), and Non-linear Time History Method (NLTHM).
