Ductility plays an important role in structures subjected to earthquake loads. As structures are not designed for full amount of forces induced under seismic events, the structure is expected to undergo nonlinear deformations. In case of reinforced concrete buildings, ductility safeguards building against dangerous brittle failure. The effect of ductile detailing on seismic performance of reinforced concrete building is studied in present study. For this three different type of frames are employed. The analysis is carried out using non-linear static procedure. The pushover curve and storey displacement results show that reinforced concrete frames with ductile detailing show better performance in non-linear regiong.
