Abstract—In the present paper study of nonlinear dynamic analysis of Ten storied RCC building considering different seismic intensities is carried out and seismic responses of such building are studied. The building under consideration is modeled with the help of SAP2000-15 software. Five different time histories have been used considering seismic intensities V, VI, VII, VIII, IX and X on Modified Mercalli's Intensity scale (MMI) for establishment of relationship between seismic intensities and seismic responses. The results of the study shows similar variations pattern in Seismic responses such as base shear and storey displacements with intensities V to X. From the study it is recommended that analysis of multistoried RCC building using Time History method becomes necessary to ensure safety against earthquake force.
