Lateral forces induced on a structure due to seismic waves and wind forces, have given rise to the study of lateral load resisting elements such as braces, shear wall, dampers, etc. Below are the areas that this project intends to investigate and come up with a conclusive hypothesis. height of the building and the effects that lateral loads have on the height. Working loads which the multistorey frame must carry together with the appropriate load factors. Analysis of gravity and lateral loads on a multistorey frame structure, Finding the suitable distribution of bending moment, shear and axial forces throughout the frame for appropriate load combinations. A prime concern in multistorey frame design is the sway (or the physiological response to sway forces) induced by wind at the working level. The influence of sway on the strength and stability of the frame in the inelastic range response is an equally vital concern in providing a margin of safety.
