Abstract: In recent years various software are available for earthquake analysis of buildings like STAAD.Pro, ETabs and many more. There are multiple methods for earthquake analysis of a multi-storey building by this software. The aim of the paper is to compare two such methods by STAAD.Pro software. These two methods are when seismic weight is applied to the nodes and when applied on the beams. From this analysis comparison of storey shear at the different storey is observed. Moreover, storey drift and storey displacements at different floor level are compared.
