This research paper focuses on the structural behaviour of multi-storey building for different plan configuration such as regular building along with L- shape and I- shape in accordance with the seismic provisions suggested in IS: 1893-2002 to analyze the performance of existing buildings if exposed to seismic loads. In this modelling of G+25 storeys RCC framed building is studied for earthquake load using STAAD- PRO V8i. Assuming that material property is linear static and dynamic analysis is performed. These analyses are carried out by considering different seismic zones (IV and V) and for each zone the behaviour is assessed by taking three different types of soils namely Hard, Medium and Soft. Post analysis of the structure, lateral displacements, story drift, base shear, maximum bending moment and design results are also computed and compared for all the cases.
