Study of Outrigger System for High Rise Structures
Mohd Tauseef | Mithun D Gawade | Parmesh P Surnar
Abstract: With increased demand of high-rise structure in recent scenario of increasing population. It has been a mandatory need to study about the proficient methods for safe and adroitly serviceable structure. On of such method is Outrigger method, which is eventually a stiffening method with a central core connecting to outer columns with the help of trusses laid horizontally, possibly with belt truss on periphery. This kind of structure can be very corroborative by preventing the overturning of structure hence reducing the storey drift making the core of stout nature. Another important determinant in choosing the outrigger format of structure is that since the system is quite rigid in comparison to conventional vertical cantilever system hence the foundation part is required to be designed much burly.
