A high rise residential building (tall building) design is governed by lateral loads, i.e. wind load, seismic load. Performance of structures under frequently occurring earth quake ground motions resulting in structural damages as well as failures have repeatedly demonstrated the seismic vulnerability of existing buildings, due to their design which based on only gravity loads or inadequate levels of lateral forces. Infills, Bracings systems are one of the most commonly used lateral load resisting systems in high rise buildings (HRB). This paper presents a comprehensive comparative study of the Dynamic loads and their effects on tall buildings using Response spectrum method. The results of the Structural response on various parameters such as storey drift, Structural lateral displacements, Base shear, Stiffness for Normal Building and different Load resisting systems have been compared and discussed. An analytical study on multi-Storey building of 30 stories was carried out for different seismic zones and soft soil type using different bracing systems i.e., X-brace, V-brace, inverted V or chevron brace and infills are introduced in these analytical models. These building models are analyzed using E Tabs 2015 software employing Response Spectrum method as per IS 1893 (Part I): 2002.
