Abstract: Modern multi storied buildings are being constructed with floating column at the ground floor to meet the requirements of parking or other aesthetic or utility value. Masonry buildings have proved to be most vulnerable when earthquakes strike in any part of the world. The damage caused by the earthquake cannot be eliminated but it could be mitigated by taking extra precaution. Floating columns can be constructed at any level or storey, at any point in the construction area. Seismic analysis is a major tool in earthquake engineering; this is used to understand the response of buildings due to seismic excitations in a simpler manner. Response Spectrum Analysis was used. Assumptions were made to study the seismic effect on different position of floating column for a six storied RC framed building.
