Study Multistoried Building using Different Software under Different Vertical and Horizontal Loads.

  • L. Balwinder


The purpose of the software is to study the variations in the results of a multistoried building using 3 different software using SAP-2000 [1], ETABS[2] and STAAD Pro[3] under same conditions for the different loads. For this a 12 storied structure is taken and analyzed and the output variation is compared to find the difference in the results of all the 3 software with different load combinations is also studied.


The multistoried structure is modeled and analyzed using three software using ETABS, STAAD Pro and SAP-2000 [4] by subjecting the structure to dead load [5], live load [6] and earthquake load. The result obtained after analysis are compared.


The findings of the results obtained for the multistoried building using three different software will be helpful to the structural consultants, students and engineers to know which software is better for the design of a multistoried building subjected to vertical and horizontal load.

Research limitations /implications:-

The software provide good results only if the user has a depth knowledge of the software .The software is just a sort of calculator in the hands of an engineers. If the input data is provided in correct, proper and systematic way the output given by the software is also correct. To get the best results the user should have good and deep experience in software.  


Practical Implications:-

The study done will help the engineers to choose the software which gives the better results with greater accuracy.

Originality / value:-The comparative analysis of a multistoried structure using  ETABS, STAAD Pro and SAP-2000 and there comparison of results obtained from these software with different load combination is not available to the community of civil engineers it will be of great help to them while designing a multistoried buildings with confidence
