The moment frame building generally follows a predefined load path which starts from slab, goes along beam, beam column joint, columns and foundation to soil underneath. For this path strength hierarchy of the individual member plays an important role. In this paper the effect of strength hierarchy on the seismic performance of building are studied by nonlinear pushover analysis techniques. The building is modeled and analyzed by ETABS analysis package. Two models of the building, one having strong column and weak beam (SCWB) and other having weak columns and strong beam(WCSB) are considered for the study and their performance are evaluated by nonlinear pushover curve and performance point. The building having SCWB design performs better than WCSB design in terms of strength and ductility.
