In present scenario buildings with floating column is a typical feature in the modern multi-storey construction in urban India. Such features are highly undesirable in a building built in seismically active areas .This paper aims to investigate the effect of a floating column under earthquake excitation for various soil conditions and as there is no provision or magnification factor specified in I.S. Code, hence the determination of such factors for safe and economical design of a building having floating column. Linear Dynamic Analysis is done for 2D multi storey frame with and without floating column to achieve the above aim i.e. the responses (effect) and factors for safe and economical design of the structure under different earthquake excitation.

Keywords: Floating Column, Linear Analysis, Response Spectrum Analysis, Magnification Factor.

Article published in International Journal of Current  Engineering  and Technology, Vol.4,No.1 (Feb- 2014)
