This paper presents a study on the seismic assessment of response of ten-story RC building using fluid viscous damper. The proposed model building is placed in hawassa, seismic zone 4.It is a square shaped building and its occupancy is residential. All structural members are designed in accordance with EURO CODE 8. Load consideration is based on EBCS-1. The frame type of proposed model building used is the special RC moment resisting frame. In this study, response spectrum analysis technique is used for dynamic analysis. The analysis and design of the structure are carried out through the use of ETABS 2015 software program. Earthquakes are one of the major natural hazards in the world. In this study a fluid viscous damper is used to manipulate seismic response of the proposed building. The mechanic properties of a fluid viscous damper used in this paper are mass 44Kg and weight 250kN. The maximum storey drifts, base shears, maximum story displacements and time periods are compared.
