Abstract: Analysis of structural performance of a building plays a vital role in its efficient design and resistance to withstand earthquakes. Weight of a building is a major factor in its performance against seismic loading. The seismic load assessment is a very important factor in the performance of the building under the action of earthquakes of different magnitudes and according to these loads; the buildings are designed [4]. One of the main criteria of a structurally sound building is that, it should meet all the functional requirement of the user, for all given parameters, in other words it should be efficient in all respect. The objective of this study is to compare the lateral (seismic) loads subjected to each floors of four G+5 RC framed buildings of storey heights 3.5m, 4.0m, 4.5m and 5m keeping the plan dimension of the buildings same. The buildings are considered to be located in zone V region. The lateral loads are calculated by vertically distributing the design base shear acting on the buildings using equivalent static load method conforming IS 1893(part 1): 2002. The study results revealed the fact that the lateral load values acting on a particular floor level does not necessarily increase with the increase in height of the buildings especially when the difference in heights are not significant.
