The diploma thesis deals with the design of a three-storey industrial building. The supporting structure
is represented by 9 moment resisting frames with a span of 10 meters which are 6 meters appart.
Horizontal stiffness in the longitudinal direction is provided with eccentric bracings with medium
lenght seismic links. The floor construction is designed as a composite concrete panel, which rests on
the secondary beams, and is connected to primary steel beams.
Effects on the structure were determined in accordance with Slovenian standards SIST EN 1991 and
SIST EN 1998. The construction was analyzed in a computer program SCIA Engineer 13.1. The
global analysis of the structure was calculated using two planar frames and elastic second order
analysis taking into account global initial imperfections. Seismic loads were considered with lateral
force method of analysis.
The structure is designed as highly ductile. Dissipative areas are located in the beams and eccentric
bracings. For ensuring the intended configuration of plastic hinges, the columns are protected after the
capacity design method.
The serviceability limit state was checked and defermations were in accordance with the standards.
