The main goal of our project is to design an 18 stories hospital including one basement located in Beirut. This hospital was designed in a seismic manner, in order to resist any earthquake with minimal damage using ASCE 7-10, ACI-318M-14, IBC-2012 and LIBNOR codes. The hospital is modeled using ETABS software which studies the structure behavior due to seismic loads. ETABS is also used to perform analysis, response spectrum and static equivalent dynamic. After applying previous methods, the design process began of the structural elements which includes slabs, beams, columns and shear walls. After ETABS design was finished, the modal was exported to SAFE to proceed to the design of the foundation.
