Earthquake causes the random ground motions because of which most of the structures subjected to infrequent loading. Seismic behavior of structure is analyzed by Static pushover method of analysis. Static pushover method analyzes the structure based on the formation of hinges. In present study is done assigning user defined hinges for beams and columns we given calculated moment curvature relations as input. Nonlinear static pushover analysis is performed in SAP 2000 based on FEMA 365 and ATC
