Prestressed transfer beam is a new context in structural design. It is used to reduce the number of columns by transferring loads from one column to the surrounding columns with the tensioning of high strength tendons in transfer beam. Different structural behavior under seismic load of a multistoried building is studied in this paper. As a densely populated mega city, multistoried buildings may mitigate the living problem in Dhaka. Prestressed transfer beam having different dimension and at different location can be used in mixed use building for minimizing seismic load. So, a plan of 25 storied residential cum commercial building with two basements had been selected in the context of Dhaka city. The structural behaviour of RCC and prestressed transfer beams have been investigated in this study. Two cases had been established to analyze the building with the use of ETABS 17.0.1. Case 1, in which RCC transfer beams are positioned and Case 2, in which prestressed transfer beams are positioned in different location in 6th floor. Comparison of various parameters like base shear, moments, maximum lateral deflection, inter story drift and rotation between RCC and prestressed transfer beams have been analyzed from the ETABS 17.0.1 software. Prestressed transfer beam must be designed with a proper purpose and functional requirement. Prestressed transfer beams are a typical feature in the multi-storied construction as far now.
