Abstract: The present investigation shows the research work carried out on the composite structure provided with bracing system. For this investigation, 12 storey irregular building and 16 storey regular building were modelled in staad.pro design software with different types of bracing (i.e. cross bracing, V-type bracing and zigzag bracing) at the edges of the building to provide lateral stability. For this study, steel framed structure was proposed for upper 4 storey of 12 storey building and 16 storey building in order to reduce the dead weight of the structure and wind analysis was performed. All the members were studied in a scrutinized way after the analysis from the post-processing of staad.pro and the performance of the structure was evaluated. The effectiveness of bracing system and introduction of steel framed structure in RCC building was concluded as the final outcome of the present investigational study. In the gist, it has been concluded that minimum displacement was found out in type A and type X building which entails cross type bracing which has proved to be more effective than V type and zigzag type bracing. And building having zigzag bracing entails minimum total quantity whereas, building having cross bracing system uses maximum material quantity. There was slight variation in % of steel as the column sizes were same for same type of building i.e 12 storey irregular building and 16 storey regular building.
