The main objective of isolation system is to elongate the structural time period, thereby shifting the natural period of the structure from the predominant periods of earthquake. Isolator mainly does three roles: energy dissipation, rigidity, and horizontal flexibility against lateral loads. The aim of my project is to study the responses of the structure for flat slab and beam slab system of RC structure by response spectrum analysis. The modeling and analysis of the structure are carried out using ETABS 2016 software. The dynamic properties of the structure such as base shear, storey drift, time period, and storey displacement are found, and the comparison is made between them.
