Abstract. Steel has much importance over other construction materials in recent days because of its high strength and ductility. It has high resistance to tension when compared to concrete in compression. This paper mainly focuses to evaluate the beam column rolled and cooled formed steel connection by moment resistant connection with the help of stiffened, unstiffened and splices connections. Due to its economical development and best seismic performance by various shapes in cross sectional area and different connections it has been widely used. By clubbing these criteria, it results to study the seismic performance of cold formed steel sections area using different moment resistance connection. At long last the report result the graft association has best second opposition association, seismic safe of designs, load conveying limit is high what’s more, least weight contrast and different sorts of associations. The join association load conveying limit is high, so we can diminish the size of segment and forestall the base shear because of decreasing the heaviness of the designs.
