Analysis of Multi-Storey Structures using MATLAB
An important aspect in the multi-storey frame analysis is the impact of sequential application of dead load, and because of the sequential nature of structures, it is ignored by many engineers in the past. One of the effective methods to consider this impact is to perform the analysis with step-by-step processes along with sequential application of dead loads. However, these processes require complex computations and more processing time. In this current work, various studies and analysis on multi-storey building is done in consideration with dead loads. For performing the analysis, sequential and simultaneous approaches are followed out. The analysis results with dominant structural probable parameters helps in calculating η (the ratio of moment force by sequential analysis to simultaneous analysis). Using the extracted analysis values, network model is proposed and the validation analysis is performed to determine the values of sequential moment forces of any floor in the building. The strength of the neural network is verified for a number of sample buildings with extensive variations in their structural characteristics within the practical range.
