The thesis deals with a design of a six-storey reinforced concrete building with a two-storey basement.
The main objective was to evaluate the difference in the required amount of reinforcement, if
determined based on the design seismic action with consideration of the provisions of SIST EN 1992
standard or with consideration of provisions of SIST EN 1992 and 1998. The latter aproach increases
the design safety due to more restrictive design requirements and due to the prescribed use of capacity
design method. Firstly, the basis of earthquake-resistant design of reinforced concrete buildings is
summarized in the thesis, followed by the description of the building's model and analysis, which,
among other things, involves checks of the second order effects and the check of the serviceability
limit state. Computer program SAP2000 was used for the analysis and partly for the design of the
building, whereas walls were designed with computer program DIAS. The structural system of the
building in both directions is an uncoupled wall system, which was taken into consideration for the
design according to SIST EN 1998, where ductility class medium (DCM) was assumed. Comparison
of results showed that more reinforcement is needed when SIST EN 1998 provisions are applied. This
was the most evident for walls, since the increase of longitudinal and transverse reinforcement with
respect to that based on SIST EN 1992 amounted to 37 % and 27 % respectively.
