Shear walls are incorporated in building to resist lateral Forces and support the gravity loads. RC shear wall has high in plane stiffness. Positioning of shear wall has influence on the overall behaviour of the building. For effective and efficient performance of building it is essential to position shear wall in an ideal location. This paper presents the response of building with different positioning of shear wall using both Equivalent Static Method (Seismic Coefficient Method) and Response spectrum Analysis. Five different Model of RCC building, one with no shear wall and other four models with different position of shear wall which is subjected to earthquake load in zone V has been studied .This study also incorporates how the bending moment, shear force for beam and axial Force for column vary with change in positioning of RC shear wall. Building are modelled and analysed using standard package ETABS 2013.
