As studies have been conducted on structures exposed to earthquake or other similar destructive events revealed, implementation problems during construction have led to slight, serious and irrevocable damage. Meanwhile, with respect to various sensitive and subtle details, implementing concrete structures have not been excluded from this principle or are involved with these problem’s consequences. The present study investigated the relation between ductility and energy absorption, especially when the imposed lateral load is alternative. Also, the issue of energy-taking and input energy dissipation in a structure implemented according to international standards details of reinforced was studied. Furthermore, by implementing damage index model based on hysteric energy theory, three index levels including elemental, stratified and general structure damage were presented and the importance of precisely implementing regulation details were interpreted. Moreover, ductility and energy absorption level in tall structures’ load revisiting systems as well as structures’ non-linear behavior causes were explained. Since this case study focused on bending frame system and shear wall and analyzed total deformation of structures constituting shear wall and rigid frame. The research findings can be useful to determine the effect of implementing international standards details of reinforced concrete buildings on ductility and energy absorption of structure.
