    Abstract :

    The tumor of population with a quicker frequency has imposed an unadorned effect on land which is resulting in its shortage and thereby swelling the land cost making it unaffordable for an average person. Due to this, the FAR (Floor Area Ratio) in big cities is increasing. This has enforced mankind to go for high rise structures. But, as the height of a structure increases, the effect of lateral forces increases with it. Lateral force resisting system plays an important role in the multistoried buildings which are situated in high seismic zones. Lateral force resisting system reduces the lateral forces acting during the earthquake and increases the stiffness of the structure. To make the structure earthquake resistant, the provision of lateral force resisting system is essential. There are various types of lateral force resisting systems like shear wall, braced core, shear core, outrigger with belt system, coupled shear wall, bracings etc. The scope of this paper is confined to RCC structures only. In this paper, the emphasis is given on the structures having lateral force resisting system. This study pointed to compare these systems and ranking all in terms of their efficiency. Static and dynamic analysis has been carried out and results have been compared. Cost evaluation has also been carried out. Several books and IS codes has been referred to obtain the results up to maximum accuracy.
