P-delta effect is secondary effect on structure .it is also known as ‘Geometric nonlinearity effect’. As number of stories increases, P-delta effect becomes more important. If the change in bending moments and displacements is more than 10%, P-delta effect should be considered in design. In this study the P-delta effect on high rise building is studied. Linear static analysis (without P-delta effect) on high rise building having different number of stories is carried out. For the analysis G+14, G+19, G+24, (i.e 15, 20, and 25storey) R.C.C. framed building are modeled. Earthquake load is applied on model of structure as per IS-18939(2002) for zone III in E-Tab software. Load combination for analysis is set as per IS-456(2000).All analysis is carried out in software ETAB. Bending moment, story displacement with and without p-delta effect is calculated and compared for all the models. Then by trial and error method suitable cross-section are provided for unsafe building to bring within acceptable limit by increasing stiffness of a building. The result shows that it is essential to consider the P-delta effect for 25storey building. So buildings having height more than or equal to 75m, should be designed considering P-delta effect. Also we can say that up to 25storey building, it is not necessary to consider P-delta effect in design and primary or first order analysis is sufficient for design. By increasing stiffness of building by providing suitable cross section or by increasing stiffness building can bring within acceptable limit.[7]
