This project aims to evaluate the ophthalmic hospital in Nablus, which has a mixed structural system of braced (stone) frames and shear walls.
The evaluation will include static, dynamic, and soil structure interaction analysis, in 3D view, in order to approach the actual model as much as possible.
Two Methods will be used:
Manual analysis: assuming 1D structural elements, using recommendations of ACI -05, as done in most engineering offices, (trying to match the reality).
Program analysis: (assuming 3D views, and 1D, 2D structural elements, using structural analysis program sap 2000 v.12, more close to reality).
After the checks on the model, by manual analysis and by program, the results will be compared with the as built design details, evaluate of the as built detail will be performed, first for the gravity loads and then for both, gravity and seismic loads
