In this paper a study has been carried to know the dynamic shear amplification in the structures. Unified Performance-Based Seismic Design (UPBD) has been used to design the buildings where both target drift of buildings is considered along with the performance level. Two different buiding with different plan is used. The performance objectives of the buildings are selected in terms of interstorey drift ratio (IDR) and member performance level. The target performance objectives for the two buildings considered are 2% IDR with Life Safety (LS) performance level, and 3% IDR with Collapse Prevention (CP) performance level. The buildings have been modeled using SAP2000 V 14.0.0 software. The performance parameters have been evaluated by performing nonlinear analysis.
