This study presents an effective stiffness-based optimal technique to control quantitatively lateral drift and evaluates the structural behavior characteristics and efficiency for tall outrigger system subject to lateral loads. To this end, displacement sensitivity depending on behavior characteristics of outrigger system is established and approximation concept that can efficiently solve large scale problems is introduced. Specifically, under the 'constant-shape' assumption, resizing technique of member is developed. Two types of 60 story frameworks are presented to illustrate the features of the quantitative lateral drift control technique proposed in this study.
