Nowadays soft storey is a typical feature in the modern construction in urban India. At the soft storey in building, there is a discontinuity in the rigidity of the structure due to absence or lack of infill walls. Generally, the soft or weak storey exists at the ground floor level, but it could be at any other storey level of the building. In this study, seismic analysis of effects of soft storey building frames considering G+6 building, 5 models by varying the soft storey to different floors have been carried out. Soft storeys have been considered by same floor heights and effect of infill walls is ignored. For the analysis of building STAAD PRO v8i is used. Results are collected in terms of storey drift, storey, displacements & base shear.
