High rise structures are becoming ever more popular among engineers today. These structures are an excellent option for accommodating a large number of people in places where land is scarce. And as our knowledge of structural and material behavior grows, so too, do the structures we build. On the other hand , the taller a structure is , the more difficult it becomes to ensure that the said structure is able to resist natural forces and remain stable .
