COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF STRUCTURES MADE BY GFRP REBARS AND GEOPOLYMER CONCRETE AGAINST CONVENTIONAL REINFORCED CONCRETE SYSTEM
Keywords:glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP), geopolymer concrete, concrete structures, ETABS, Pushover analysis,
The main purpose of this paper is to comparative study of strength of multi-storey, multibay frame buildings for lateral load for all materials combinations comes out of GFRP rebars, steel rebars, Geopolymer concrete, and conventional cement based concrete (such as GFRP-CONCRETE FRAME, GFRP-GEOPOLYMER FRAME, STEEL-CONCRETE FRAME, and STEEL-GEOPOLYMER FRAME of G+8, G+10, and G+12 STORIES) using nonlinear pushover analysis. Pushover analysis will carried out using ETABS 2016 software and using M3 and V2 hinges for beams and P-M-M hinges for columns. This paper shows the comparisons of displacement vs base shear at performance point and also shows comparison of maximum storey displacement vs base shear curve.
