Abstract: The software development block of G+7 has been considered to illustrate the analysis process. ETABS analysis tool is used for the analysis of the structure. This stud analyse and design the multi- story structure with shell element which is located at unstable ground condition (i.e.) the soil possess very low bearing capacity. As per standard code suitable pile foundation is designed for unstable ground condition. The whole structure with shell element and pile foundation is analysed and the results are consolidated. The essential parameters like structure stiffness, displacement, drift, shear, overturning moment are observed and plotted in graphs.
Keywords: Shell Element, Pile Cap, Overturning Moment, ETABS.
Scope of the Article: Soil-Structure Interaction
