Abstract: Columns are the core lateral load resisting elements in the buildings which do not have any other forms of resisting components. The sectional dimensions of the columns are often judge based upon the gravitational loading or a combined effect of gravitational and lateral loading on the structure. As per the early research on irregular buildings, they are highly vulnerable for damage when subjected to lateral forces (seismic/wind) when compared to regular shaped buildings, due to the presence of torsional forces. It has also been proved that these torsional forces are generated due to structural eccentricities of the system. The centres of stiffness and strength are predominantly dependent upon the configuration of the lateral load resisting elements. In this study, the effect of proper configuration of column’s dimensions on torsional parameters of irregular buildings is carried out. Non-linear Time History analysis on Plan irregular building with dual asymmetry is performed using scaled acceleragrams and the torsional parameters such are diaphragm’s rotation, torsional irregularity ratio, angular acceleration of the diaphragm are compared with the basic model.
