The effect of blast load on a multi-storeyed building is a serious challenge that should be taken into consideration for designing the structures. This type of loading damages the structures, critically. The blast near a building frame system causes series of effects which are grievious in nature, such as damage to the structural elements, collapse of walls and floor slabs. The present study includes the analysis of a ten-storey building subjected to blast loading at a standoff distance of 25 m and also applied inside the building at the ground storey level. The application of blast load and the analysis of structure for the same is carried out in ETABS. In this study, eight different multi-storeyed structural building models having shear walls at different locations, composite columns and bracings on the peripheral frame of the building models have been considered for analysis. The results of the analysis show that the effect of shear walls, bracings and composite columns placed at different locations on the structural building models and their different combinations adopted in the building models is observed to have enhanced the overall stiffness and stability of the structure subjected to blast load causing lower values of storey displacements due to increase in resistance towards blast. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
