       In this study, the levels of performance of braced RC frame system during the earthquake are determined by using Pushover Analysis.

This study consists of five chapters. In the first chapter, some information about issues and purpose of the study are given. In the second chapter, pushover analysis are given with analysis examples. In the third chapter, in the the conclusion drawn from analysis results. In the fourth chapter, results and some recommendations are given. This chapter is followed by the list of references.

      It is concluded that braced frames increase the rigidity of reinforced concrete frame structure against earthquake performance levels and capacity. Also concluded that pushover analysis are usefull for new buildings or old buildings of incrise performance and determinate of new building performance levels
