The structure that are widely used around the gold now days are mainly composite structure. These types of models or structures are used to make long span lower story heights and also to give extra stiffness. The past result shows that most of the collapses of buildings occur when the structure is struck with earthquake or seismic load. The poison’s ratio is one of the most integral part which gives stability for the structure. In this research it is about the change is the poison’s ratio that occurs with the change in percentage of steel and the grade of concrete in a reinforced concrete section. The variation in poisons ratio shows the variation in the stability of the structure. The study of the poisons ratio will help in a better practical design of the structure to prevent or the resist the structure from collapse during earthquake. In this paper we will see the experimental variation of the poisons ratio of column and we will analysis the behavior using software. Poison’s ratio usually deals with the lateral strain and linear strain. This poisons ratio was found out by Simeon poison. It is one of the most important aspects in the design of any kind of structure.
