  7. Abstract:
  8. Composite Reinforced Concrete-Steel (RCS) frames which have reinforced concrete columns and steel beams attracted a lot of attention in recent years. They take advantage from the benefits of both reinforced concrete and steel frames thorough using the optimum combination of concrete and steel structural elements. In this research six structures including three 3-story, and three 6-story buildings are designed in a region with very high seismicity risk. These structures include composite RCS moment frames, special steel moment frames, and reinforced concrete special moment frames. RCS moment frames which are designed they not only have reinforced concrete columns similar to reinforced concrete moment frames, but also steel beams to steel moment frames. Seismic performance of composite RCS, reinforced concrete, and steel moment frames are evaluated through nonlinear static analysis (pushover) performed in SAP 2000 software. The results show that RCS moment frames have more lateral capacities in comparison to RC and steel moment frames, and their seismic performance is better than similar RC and steel moment frames
