The vulnerability of buildings to seismic activity remains a critical concern in regions prone to earthquakes. Engineering interventions aimed at enhancing the earthquake resistance of structures are paramount for minimizing casualties and economic losses. This study presents a comparative analysis of earthquake-resistant buildings of varying heights, employing the powerful structural analysis tool, STAAD-PRO software. The research focuses on assessing the structural performance of buildings subjected to seismic loads across different heights. Various structural parameters such as base shear, inter-story drift, and displacement are evaluated to gauge the effectiveness of earthquake-resistant design strategies. The analysis considers buildings with heights ranging from low-rise to high-rise structures, reflecting real-world scenarios encountered in seismic-prone regions. The methodology involves modeling the buildings using STAAD-PRO, a widely-used software for structural analysis and design. Different earthquake loadings corresponding to various seismic zones are applied to simulate realistic seismic events. By systematically altering building heights and configurations, the study aims to elucidate the impact of height on structural response and seismic performance. Furthermore, the study investigates the efficacy of different earthquake-resistant design techniques such as shear walls, bracings, and damping systems in mitigating seismic forces. Comparative assessments are made to identify optimal design strategies for structures of varying heights, considering factors such as construction cost, material utilization, and architectural constraints. The outcomes of this research provide valuable insights into the behavior of earthquake-resistant buildings under seismic loading conditions, especially concerning the influence of building height on structural response. The findings aim to contribute to the development of more robust and resilient building designs, thereby enhancing the safety and sustainability of structures in earthquake-prone regions.
