Abstract: This paper presents an numerical model analysis on evaluation of seismic behavior of the reinforced concrete high rise residential building, which involved a comparison study between a simplified computer model and, a reduced scale structural model in laboratory test by means of an earthquake simulator (shaking table). The discussion is mainly focused on representation of the test structure in respect to the actual (Real Life) building. The response characteristics of the structure is also reviewed from the point of view of the current design practice (non-seismic approach) so as to determine the level of seismic resistance of the wind-effect concerned building under earthquarke case. Analytical expectations from computer programme are compared to the previous experimental results in order to verify the overall structural performance of the building. Summaries of discussion and conclusion are established for future reference on seismic design for high-rise building.
