In the present study, one such structural system known as Outrigger and Belt Truss system are studied. The behavior of 45 storey structure for lateral loads is evaluated with Core wall, 3 Outrigger and Belt Truss systems by placing them at different storey levels using ETABS structural software. The parameters like Displacements, Inter-storey drifts and Bending Moments in Core wall are plotted and compared with the structure having only Core wall. Using these parameters, optimum location of 3 Outriggers and Belt Truss is obtained. Outriggers and Belt Truss placed at four equal parts of the structure is observed to be more efficient for lateral loads.
