Diploma deals with the design of four story office building. The structural system of the building is made of moment resisting frames in transverse direction and frames with eccentric braces in the longitudinal direction of the building. The geometric nonlinear static analysis with initial imperfections was performed to determine internal forces in the elements. All the elements of supporting structure as well as typical joints were designed.
The static analysis, the seismic action and the design of the elements were performed according to SIST EN 1990, SIST EN 1991, SIST EN 1993, SIST EN 1994 and SIST EN 1998.
