Abstract

Diagrid structural system has led to significant innovations in architectural and structural concepts. In case of high rise structures, the lateral load resistance is usually provided by interior or exterior structural systems. Adoption of diagrid structural system in high rise construction provides better structural efficiency in resisting lateral load along with flexibility in architectural planning. Such system consists of inclined columns on the exterior surface of buildings instead of closely spaced vertical columns in framed structures. This paper presents a comparative study of seismic characteristics of diagrid structural systems for multi-storey structures. The results based on numerical models indicate that these structures can address most of the present-day design requirements. The study aims to explore the applicability of diagrid structures in high rise structures, over the traditional construction systems. Numerical models and seismic characteristics of diagrid members have been studied using software SAP-2016.
