This study presents an effective optimal technique to control quantitatively lateral drift for tall steel braced frames subject to horizontal loads. In this paper, the displacement sensitivity depending on behavior characteristics of steel braced frames is established, and also the approximation concept that has the generality of the mathematical programming and can efficiently solve large scale problems is introduced. Especially, the commercially available standard steel sections are used for the discrete selection of member sizes. Three types of 12-story braced frames and a 30-story braced framework are presented to illustrate the features of the quantitative lateral drift control technique proposed in this study.

본 연구는 수평하중을 받는 고층철골가새골조의 횡변위를 정량적으로 제어하는 효율적인 최적화 기법을 제시한다. 이를 위해 철골가새골조의 거동특성에 근거한 변위 민감도를 구성하고 수학적계획법의 일반성을 유지하면서 규모가 큰 문제도 효율적으로 다를 수 있는 근사화 개념이 도입된다. 아울러 단면 재선정시 상용화된 표준철골단면을 이용하는 이산형 최적화 방안도 고려한다. 제시된 기법의 효율성을 검토하기 위해 세 가지 종류의 12층 철골가새골조와 30층의 가새보강된 철골조 모델이 고려된다.
