Abstract: The seismic analysis is becoming a popular tool for seismic performance evaluation of existing and new structures. Seismic analysis provide an adequate information on seismic demands imposed by the design ground motion on the structural system and its components. The recent advent of structural design for a particular level of earthquake performance, such as immediate post-earthquake occupancy, (termed as performance based earthquake engineering), has resulted in guidelines such as ATC-40, FEMA-356 and standards such as ASCE-41. Among the different types of analysis, seismic analysis comes forward because of its optimal accuracy, efficiency and ease of use. In the present study, the behaviour of G+8 storied R.C frame buildings (H shape in plan, with T and square Shaped column) subjected to earthquake, located in seismic zone III was discussed briefly using STAAD. Pro software. Gravity loads and laterals loads as per IS 1893-2002 are applied on the structure and it was designed using IS 456.
