Abstract: Multistoreyed buildings are used for both residential and commercial purposes, for commercial usage flat slab systems are adopted over traditional frame structures. This is due to reduced floor to floor height, use of space, easier formwork and shorter construction time. In the present work to improve the performance of the building, A G+12 storey flat slab building with drop and without drop are proposed for the seismic analysis. To resist the lateral loading due to earthquake, different types of shear wall such as concrete and perforated coupled shear walls are used in the structure. Both linear dynamic and non-linear dynamic analysis will be done using the software ETABS and the results will be compared
Keywords: Flat Slab, Shear Wall, Punching Shear, Storey Drift.
