Optimum Belt Truss Locations for High-rise Structures

The paper examines the behaviour of multi-storey structures employing the concept of belt truss system for wind bracing. Optimum locations of belt trusses which minimize wind sway are discussed. A simple method of analysis based on flexibility approach is presented and an example problem is worked out using the method. B.S. Taranath
