Effectiveness of Truss Supporting During Replacement of Damaged Column in a High-Rise Frame Structure Building

Truss supporting (TS) is a technique to support a building frame for replacing column when its stiffness reduces due to any kind of damage. This paper deals about the effectiveness of TS during replacement of damaged column in a high-rise frame structure building. For the case study of the effectiveness of TS, six columns that are damaged columns at different positions in the ground and first floors were taken into consideration. A suitable type of truss was modelled to transfer the load of damaged column to the lower column just below the damaged column. The numerical analysis of the 2-D frame with undamaged columns, damaged column and damaged column with truss supporting, was carried out using finite element software STAAD Pro 2004. The deflection, axial force, shear force and bending moment of the structural elements (beam & column) for TS case were obtained almost same as their design values
