RCC Framed Building With Using Belt Truss: A Review

  • Prajkta Bagade, Amey Khedikar


There may be a huge demand for high-rise buildings in modern society and therefore the continued demand for development and high-rise buildings has created the necessity for more exceptional and efficient construction systems. One such system is that the Outrigger system. These lateral loads are wind and seismic loads. To forestall this lateral load on high-rise buildings, an appropriate construction system must be identified. For lateral resistance of tall buildings, there are several construction systems. In tall buildings, the stiffness and drift of the building is even more important. The aim of the paper is to detail and conceptualize the varied configurations of belt truss structures system and to integrate current structures into longer structures by use of belt truss system. Additionally, various issues associated with outriggers and belt truss system also are discussed. A close scrutiny of literature available within the field of Outrigger system is applied and therefore the summary and gaps encountered within the study are listed during this paper. This paper introduces a replacement concept of virtual Outrigger. In which, using the belt truss structural within the RCC building so as to extend the performance of the building under the dynamic loads is studied. The assorted advantages of using virtual Outrigger over traditional ones are emphasized. Concept of Basements as Virtual outrigger is additionally reviewed within the paper.
