The standard impartial of this development is to analyze besides scheme a multi-storeyed resedential building construction G+12 (3 dimensional frame)with shear walls by using ETABS software ETABS stands for Extended Three dimensional Analysis of Building Systems.

 Now-a-days we are facing some of the major problems because of natural calamities which lead to loss in economy and our valuable life’s, one of those disaster is earthquakes to solve the problem we should caught up with earthquake resistance structures one of the technique is Shear walls, shear walls are vertical elements of the horizontal force resisting system. These walls are constructed to counter the effects of lateral load acting on a structure. Shear wall building which differs from the other building is due to the transference of lateral loads, and treated as cantilevers fixed at the basement level and constructed to carry the lateral loads safely by shear and bending. In last two decades, the shear walls become the important part of high rise building and generally lift wells and stair wells are designed as shear walls. This paper addresses the determination of interaction diagram between axial force and bending moment on the section. The interaction diagrams which giving more accurate description about the capacity of shear wall structures. Earthquakes are the most critical loading condition for all land based structures located in the seismically active regions. The reasons were (a) most of the buildings had soft and weak ground storey that provided open space for parking, (b) poor quality of concrete in columns, and (c) poor detailing of the structural design. Therefore, this incident has shown that designers and structural engineers should ensure to offer adequate earthquake resistant provisions with regard to planning, design and detailing in high rise buildings to withstand the effect of an earthquake. As an earthquake resistant system, the use of shear walls is one of the potential options. The use of shear wall buildings is quite common in some earthquake prone regions. Shear walls majorly resist the seismic force, wind forces and even can be built on soils of weak bases by adopting various ground improvement techniques.
