structures are never perfectly irregular and hence the designers and engineers need to evaluate the effect of irregularity on a structure during an earthquake. Structural irregularity may due to non-uniform distribution of mass, stiffness, strength or due to their structural form. This paper quantify and compare the effect of vertical stiffness irregularity of hexagrid and conventional structural system with irregular plan. Hexagrid is an innovative structural system for effective lateral load resistance. The understanding of response of these structural systems is a matter of concern when they are in earthquake prone areas. The comparison is made in terms of storey displacement, storey drift, storey shear and time period.
