Abstract: Reconstruction is a technical intervention in building structural systems that improves shock resistance by optimizing strength, ductility and seismic loading. The strength of a building results from the size of the structure, the material, the shape and the number of structural elements. The ductility of the building comes from good details, materials used, earthquake resistance, etc. The seismic load is generated by the seismic activity of the site, the quality of the building, the importance of the building, and the degree of earthquake resistance. In India, high rise structures are often built because of huge amount of cost and insufficiency of land. In order to take advantage of the largest land area, builders and architects usually propose high-rise building planning configurations. These buildings were built in earthquake-prone areas and may be get fail during the earthquake. Earthquakes occur naturally and can produce the forces which can cause damage in the structure. With proper design and structural component details, the building should be safe for life in order to have a malleable failure form. The knowledge of seismic forces is that the structure should be analyzed and designed to resist the seismic forces, with minimum damage and forces due to maximum consideration of the seismic forces, with some recognized structural damage but no collapse. This thesis involves Srinagar location survey which is in earthquake zone V. This exploration shows how easy an assignment for analysis that can be used to estimate the seismic resistance of existing or modified systems. The thesis analysis a detailed non-linear analysis of part of the structure for.
