in the present study attempt have been made to study the effect of (SSI) soil-structure interaction on the performance of building frame resting on isolated footing. Since the seismic response of a structure is greatly influenced by (SSI) soil-structure interaction. For superstructure (G+3) common rectangular building is considered for seismic analysis. For SSI study cohesive type of soil (medium soft clay) has been considered. The total work is divided into two parts. In first part the analysis is done manually in which two methods of analysis are used for seismic demands assessment of the target moment-resistant frame buildings: equivalent static load, response spectrum method (dynamic analysis) as per given in IS: 1893-2002 (part-II) and in the second part the analysis is carried out using ABAQUS software. The additional priority has given on manual earthquake analysis.
