Abstract: The current study find out the effects of the structural irregularity which is produced by the discontinuity of a column in a building overcome to seismic loads in Zone III. In this paper analysis is done by equivalent static method for a multistory Rcc frame of G+4, G+10, G+20 buildings with and without floating columns(FC) in seismic Zone-III. Different cases of the building are considered for the study by varying the location of floating columns on 1st floor. The analysis is carried with the help of software ETABS ver.13.
