Abstract:

In recent decades the goal of building rehabilitation and strengthening has gained research attention and numerous techniques have been developed to achieve this.In India where we have a huge population and during renovation work for strengthen purpose of a building we have to vacate the building which ultimately disturbs the living life of humans. This study shows that without disturbing planning of building it is possible to provide strength and increase ductility of building. For that shear walls are placed at parallel sides of existing building frame to improve the seismic capacity of the structure.
