In R.C. buildings, frames are considered as main structural elements, which resist shear, moment and torsion effectively. These frames are subjected to variety of loads, where lateral loads are always predominant. Infrastructures of Gulf countries are always remarkable as they mostly follow EURO standards for construction development. In view of the demand of such codes across the developing countries like India, an attempt is made to compare EURO standards with Indian standards using structural software.
