As the rate of growth of population is increasing day by day, the requirement of land is increasing for different purposes. To accommodate this increased population, the height of building is increasing thereby subsequently increasing the importance of lateral load resisting system which provide adequate strength against lateral loading arising due to earthquake and wind. In present study various lateral load resisting system have been introduced which can resist the lateral forces and safely transfer them to soil thereby improving the strength and stiffness of column structures. The lateral load resisting systems that are widely used are conventional beam column system, shear wall system, tube system, outrigger system, tubular system etc. Diagrid structural system is generally adopted in tall buildings due to its structural efficiency and flexibility in planning. Compared to closely space vertical columns in Conventional Beam column system, diagrid structure consists of inclined columns on the exterior surface of building. The concrete diagrids member is used in both precast and cast in-situ type. An exhaustive study has been performed on the performance of 20 storey RCC building with plan size 18 m × 18 m using E-TAB software. All structural members are designed as per IS 456:2000 and all the load combinations of seismic forces are considered as per IS 1893(Part 1): 2002. Finally, Parameter such as storey displacement, storey stiffness and time period are compared and obtained results were presented in both graphically and tabular format.
