Buildings are designed in different methods for resisting the lateral loads, in which strong column weak beam concept is one of the methods of designing, this method is used to avoiding the global failure of the structure In this work 3bay 5 story RC frame building is consider for the analysis, the structures are design strong column weak beam with the help of static non-linear pushover analysis of RC frame building with increasing the percentage of column sizes 20%, 40%, 60%, 80% and 100%. By varying with percentage of columns resistances of structure is increased. The parameters base shear, story displacement, and hinge formations in the structure is obtained from this analysis. The base shear and displacement are increased by increasing the column sizes, these parameters are discussed the results in detail. Comparing the all six model results the base shear in increased by 266.64% when the column size is increased by 100%. From this analysis we can reduce the failure in the structure during the earthquake. Formation of plastic hinges in column changes to beam by increasing the column size, so increase the capacity of structure. The building is analyzed by using SAP2000.
