Abstract: In India, most of the structures being constructed are Reinforced Concrete structures or Steel structures. In high rise RCC structures, the size of structural members (column, beam, and slab) increases. Due to this, self-weight of the structure also increases. Steel structures on the other hand, are ductile in nature and parameters like deflections, drifts, displacements are more compared with RCC structures. To solve these problems, composite structures might be suitable. A geometrically irregular residential building (G+18 storeys) is designed and analysed for both cases of RCC and composite structures (considering earthquake zone III) using ETABS software. The structure is analysed using linear static, linear and non-linear dynamic methods, such as equivalent static method, response spectrum method and time history method. In this study, comparison of an RCC structure and a composite structure is obtained for parameters like time period, storey displacement and storey drift, base shear, bending moment and shear forces of the structure. From the observed results, it may be clearly inferred that a steel composite, performs well in-terms of structural integrity when compared with an RCC structure.
