The high-rise buildings that are made of RCC frame, the greater importance is given to make structure safe against lateral load. These loads are produced due to wind, earthquakes etc. To resist lateral load acting on building different types of steel or RCC bracing systems are provided. The use of RCC bracing has potential advantage than other bracing like higher stiffness and stability. This study aimed the comparison of different RCC bracing system under seismic behavior in high rise buildings. Also three structural configurations used in this paper are Moment Resisting Frames (MRF5), X-Braced Frames (XBF5), V-Braced Frames (VBF5) for]] storey (G+]0) building. The bracing systems provided on periphery of the column. The frame models are analyzed as per IS: 1893-2000 using STADD.ProV8i and ETABs software's. The parameters which are considered in this paper for comparing seismic effect of buildings are base shear and storey displacement. The results showed that X-braced frames are more efficient and safe at time of earthquake when compared with moment resisting frames and V-braced frames. © IAEME Publication.
