Abstract: In this fast-paced and competitive world, building sector is at the apex of the growth of any country. High-rise buildings are admired by every human being. Traditionally the construction of a building is done by RCC but in present world, construction of high rise buildings is done by Post-Tensioning. In RCC, the economic expenditure is very high in commercial and institutional buildings because of more material required in construction and hence, Post Tensioned building proves to be more economic and durable. Post-Tensioned building saves quantity of steel and concrete as compared to RCC and increases clear span in rooms. Through this paper, the emphasis is to design a post-tensioned building using ETABS and SAFE. ETABS stand for Extended Three-Dimensional Analysis of a building systems. The main purpose of this software is to design multi-storeyed building in a systematic process which will be in accordance with Indian Standard design codes.
Keywords: Post Tensioning, Multi-storeyed, SAFE, ETABS.
