Malaysia is situated at Sunda plate which has geographic advantage in seismic zone. However, an earthquake occurred in Sabah, east of Malaysia without a warning in 2015. This scenario raised the question regarding the structural performance of high-rise buildings in Malaysia in response to seismic activity. This study is to analyze the effects of the shear wall on seven RC buildings by using pushover analysis. This pushover analysis is a simple approach where a building is subjected to increasing horizontal lateral loads until the building fails. SCIA Engineer software is used to model three different designs of seven storeys buildings are model in accordance with the Eurocode 8. The pushover analyses are carried out on three models, pushover curves (base shear vs. roof displacement) are plotted, and they are compared to explore both elastic and inelastic properties of the building response to the seismic action. The frame model without shear wall can resist less base shear. The plane frame model also approaches maximum allowable displacement of 60 mm earlier as compared to the other two models. Therefore, the high-rise buildings with shear wall design are highly recommended for the lifelong seismic resistance of reinforced concrete buildings.
