Reinforced concrete structures are one of the most popular structure systems used in our country, this project addresses the analysis and design of a reinforced concrete structural system that is located in Ramallah, consists thirteen floors with a total required area about 12536 m2, each basement has an area 1540 m2, each first and second has an area 860 m2, from the third to the seventh floor is 900 m2, eighth has a 870 m2, the ninth 730 m2 and roof floor has a 39 m2. Structural analysis and design will be conducted under seismic loads. This report will show the procedure of analysis and design of the building for seismic load. This project is following ACI 318-14. The framing arrangement and column locations of the building were provided based on architectural and structural requirements. The structure system of the building is a reinforced concrete frame with slabs and beam system. This project covers the design process in the following order: the calculation of the expected loads on the structure, the design of the slab depth, slab reinforcement and beams reinforcement for flexural, shear and axial, the calculation to check crack control, beams deflections, the estimation of the column sizes and finally the design of the column reinforcement. The project will be analyzed and designed for dynamic loads, the design will be achieved using two methods, manual (generally in preliminary design) and using computer program design modeling for the 3-D structure ETABS2016.
