Abstract

Due to the high seismicity of our regions, engineers have always sought to provide various solutions to improve the performance of buildings and consequences control of powerful earthquakes. Building Lighting is one of the methods used to reduce earthquake forces. The use of prefabricated slabs is one of the ways to reduce the dead load of a building. In this study, four types of prefabricated slabs with different thicknesses under a certain dead load have been modeled in ABAQUS Software. By analyzing nonlinear static analysis, slab capacity and nonlinear behavior are evaluated. The results show that by increasing the thickness of the slab, the shear strength of the slab increases. The results also show that the ultimate strength has been reduced in a hollow slab with polygon holes (non-circular).
