Abstract :

In this paper, the effects of staircase during the seismic performance of Multistoried Frame Structure at Center location in plans have been studied. Generally, the staircase is the part of secondary system of the structures and it is one of the essential parts of a building because of its functional importance. Staircase when compared to the modern escalators serves not only better in emergency conditions (such as fire escapes, natural disaster, etc.) but also provides considerable stiffness to the building. Due to the complex modeling of the staircase, it is designed separately for non-seismic and seismic forces.
