Strengthening of High Rise Building with Outrigger System

Authors(2) :-Abhishek Arora, Ravi Kumar

Outrigger is rigid horizontal structure designed to improve building overturning stiffness and strength by connecting the building core or spine to distant columns. Outrigger systems function by tying together two structurally systems typically a core system and a perimeter system to yield whole building structural behavior that are much better than those of the component system. Outrigger system performance is affected by outrigger locations through the height of a building, the number of levels of outrigger provided, their plan locations, the presence of belt truss to engage adjacent perimeter columns versus standalone mega columns, outrigger truss path an primary structural material used.
