Objective: The aim of this work is to study about the behavior of seven storey single bay infilled frame with pneumatic interface under various levels of pressures with lateral loads.Method: Linear analysis was carried out using a finite element based software by modeling various 2D frames. The dimension and reinforcement details for the frames are chosen based on the experimental study. For infilled frame with pneumatic interface different pressure configuration at different levels shall be considered in the study. Findings: The study of behavior includes stiffness, bending moment, axial force and shear force. The analysis of infilled frame with cement mortar interface and bare frame was also carried out to compare the frame stiffness and member forces of these frames.Interface characteristics have also influence the structural behavior of infilled frame. It has effect on overall stiffness and of the in-plane moment of inertia of composite frame and modifies energy dissipation. Applications: The research idea can be implemented in construction field so that the structural failure during earthquake will be minimized. The research work has been done relevant to study the behavior of infilled frame and to adopt new technique which can improve its performance. This study can be the basis of further studies which can increase the number of parameters under various conditions.
