Abstract: This paper deals with the non-linear analysis of frame for various positions of shear wall in a building frame. In this present study, the focus is to identify effective location of shear wall in multi-storey building. Considering model one is bare frame structural system and other three models are dual type structural system. An earthquake load is applied to a building of eight storey is located in zone II, zone III, zone IV and zone V as per Code Provision IS1893-2002. The analysis has been carried out using ETABS software. Pushover curves have been developed and compared for various models. It has been observed that structure with shear wall at appropriate location is more significant in case of displacement and base shear.
