Collision of two building which are of different dynamic characteristics is called as seismic pounding. The main reason for pounding is insufficient separation gap between the buildings. Pounding can be prevented by providing safe separation gap, but required gap is not possible in metropolitan cities. This study covers the effect of structural pounding on two building are of different structural system, in order to observe seismic pounding Time History analysis is carried out. This study also covers the prevention techniques of pounding by using introduction of RC wall and its optimization is proposed as possible mitigation techniques for pounding
