Seismic Assessment of a Historical Masonry Structure using Analysis Tool

Authors(2) :-Pankaj Agarwal, Rahul Satbhaiya

As India is a place of historical divine, here structure of 18th century also exist in a safe and static condition without much failure in there stability. In this study we are selecting a historical monumental (mahal) building, collecting its dimensional data, material property, sectional details and strength to model the same structure of same aspects in Sap2000 and to Assign Non linear static analysis to check stability criteria and resistivity of an old structure. In this study, I will analyze a historical building located at islam nagar Bhopal M.P. to determine the critical section of the monument after determining its strength, applying pushover analysis method using analysis tool SAP2000 considering seismic data of Bhopal region. In this study it is concluded that in the analysis of historical monument using analysis tool SAP2000 and assigning pushover method we concluded that brick masonary section is critical one and need to be retrofitted to resist any natural calamity.
