Abstract: It is observed that there is a need the study of structural systems for R.C.C framed structure, which resist the lateral loads due to seismic effect. Safety and minimum damage level of a structure could be the prime requirement of tall buildings. To meet these requirements, the structure should have adequate lateral strength, lateral stiffness and sufficient ductility. Among the various structural systems, shear wall frame or braced concrete frame could be a point of choice for designer. Therefore, it attracts to review and observe the behavior of these structural systems under seismic effect. Hence, it is proposed to study the dynamic behavior of reinforced concrete frame with and without shear wall and concrete braced frame. The purpose of this study is to compare the seismic response of above structural systems. Axial forces and moments in members and floor displacements will be compared.
