1. Modelling of reinforced concrete buildings may be covered in greater detail so that everyone follows the same approximate method and arrive at results in a narrow band. What is the "E" to be taken; Properties of section in case of Columns, Beams; How to model Slabs; Staircases; Lift Walls, Masonry Partition
The effective forces on the strucural system would dramatically change
the partition walls have cracked. Do we check the design before as well as after cracking of walls? Once the walls crack, should we still anchor the forces to the empirical value of period. If there is a structure without masonry partitions, should we insist on anchoring to empirical value of period or permit the analysis based on the flexible structure. 2. The damaging earthquake may occur once [or very few times or not at
in the life time of the structure. Why insist on so many combinations
considering earthquake loading. WHY NOT JUST ONE SET OF COMBINATION ONLY? 3. A revision should comment on seismic zoning - the present one is
it has higher risk in Peninsular India and the severe zones are untouched since 1970 !! 4. the revision should comment on "R" Are the values achievable even under controlled Lab conditions ?
