"performance-based" seismic design, which can be thought of as an explicit design for multiple limit states Analyzing structures for various levels of earthquake intensity and checking some local and/or global criteria for each level has been a popular academic exercise for the last couple of decades, but the crucial development that occurred relatively recently was the recognition of the necessity for such procedures by a number of practicing engineers influential in code drafting. The main cause of failure of multi-storey multi-bay reinforced concrete frames during seismic motion is the soft storey sway mechanism or column sway mechanism. The seismic inertia forces generated at its floor levels are transferred through the various beams and columns to the ground. The failure of a column can affect the stability of the whole building, but the failure of a beam causes localized effect.The main objective of this search work is to present a detailed 3 dimensional seismic analysis and capacity based design of G+3, G+8 & G+15 storied-three bay reinforced concrete frame. The report provides an introduction to the earthquake, effects, designing of the buildings and studies review of literature pertaining to performance based seismic analysis. It highlights various aspects related to the capacity based designing and explains about Limit State design which an old method of building designing. The study reveals modeling and analysis. The capacity based design of G+3; G+8 & G+15 of old and new building design methods have been modeled and analyzed. The report draws out the result of study and provides a comparative study. The project report also provides a comprehensive conclusion and offers a scope for future research as well.
