Abstract: Flat plate is the term used for a slab system without any column flares or drop panels. Although column patterns are usually on a rectangular grid, flat plates can be used with irregularly spaced column layouts. In flat plate loads directly to supporting columns, which is different from other two way systems by the lack of beams, column capitals, and drop panels. In tall multistoried structures the flat plate floor system has week resistance to lateral loads like wind, hence special features like shear walls, structural Walls are to be provided if they are to be used in High rise constructions. In the present investigation numerical studies for 20,40,60,80 storied for frames with normal conventional beam supported slab system, flat plate floor system, flat plate floor system with Shear walls has been conducted. A Comparison the Critical Column Axial Forces, Column moments, Lateral Drift (in mm) due to static and wind loads on the structures located at Hyderabad at a basic wind speed of 44 m/s has been observed during alalysis.
