Abstract: Steel is by far most useful material for building construction in the world and in last decades steel structure has played an important role in construction industry. Providing strength, stability and ductility are major purposes of seismic design. It is necessary to design a structure to perform well under seismic loads. In this paper nonlinear pushover analysis is carried out for high rise building steel frame with different pattern of External bracing. The shear capacity of the structure can be increased by introducing steel bracing in structural. There is ‘n’ number of possibilities to arrange steel bracing for Ex. Diagonal, X, K, V Inverted V. A typica12th- story regular steel frame having ‘V’ zone building is designed for various types of concentric bracings like Diagonal, V, X, and Exterior X in that ‘X’ Bracing are more effective. So result shows effective bracing only using STAAD PRO for bracing using different types of material sections i.e. ISMB, ISMC and ISA or any tubular or hollow sections are used to compare for same patterns of bracin.
