Contribution of existing lateral load resisting systems in seismic response of multistory structure
  Chaithra P., Ambrish G. and H. Sharada Bai
  Using an appropriate structural system is critical to good seismic performance of buildings. While moment-frame is the most commonly used lateral load resisting structural system, addition of other structural systems like structural walls, frame-wall system improve the seismic resistance. Structural system chosen should be suitable for good earthquake performance, with vertical and horizontal members of lateral load resisting system (LLRS) that can carry earthquake effects safely during strong earthquake shaking. Studies on real structures, practically adopted are negligible. Present work deals with the comparison of seismic performance of the structural system under consideration with existing features (Lift core RC wall & Infill effect along the boundary walls) as LLRS in the building using response spectrum and time history method.
