This research is conducted in order to investigate the noise and vibration effect on high-rise building during earthquake. In particular, this project is related to the damping of buildings to the ground motion which is shaking horizontally or vertically. The scopes that have been involved in this research is to design a structural high-rise building to overcome earthquake, to develop low-effect noise and vibration on high-rise building during earthquake, to reduce earthquake effect on high-rise building and also to review all the earthquake effect on high-rise building. In describing the damage of buildings and structures from earthquakes, the term that we use is the types of building and structures, the degree of damage of buildings and the number of building damage during earthquake. The division of the buildings according to the types was made in consideration of the different stability of the buildings against seismic actions. The description of the effects of the earthquake is in three directions which is the perceptibility by human beings and surroundings; buildings of any type and also the effects in the underground and alterations of the groundwater and super terrestrial water systems.
