Story Drift is defined as the difference in lateral deflection between two adjacent stories. Lateral deflection and drift have three effects on a structure; the movement can affect the structural elements (such as beams and columns); the movements can affect non-structural elements (such as the windows and cladding); and the movements can affect adjacent structures. Without proper consideration during the design process, large deflections and drifts can have adverse effects on structural elements, nonstructural elements, and adjacent structures. Drift problem as the horizontal displacement of all tall buildings is one of the most serious issues in tall building design, relating to the dynamic characteristics of the building during earthquakes and strong winds. Drift shall be caused by the accumulated deformations of each member, such as a beam, column and shear wall. lateral forces due to wind or seismic loading must be considered for tall building design along with gravity forces vertical loads. Tall and slender buildings are strongly wind sensitive and wind forces are applied to the exposed surfaces of the building, whereas seismic forces are inertial (body forces), which result from the distortion of the ground and the inertial resistance of the building. These forces cause horizontal deflection is the predicted movement of a structure under lateral loads and The structural prototype is prepared and lots of data is been collected from the prototype. All the aspects such as safety of structure in shear, moment and in story drift have been collected. Main problems that would be arising due to earthquake in the structure are story drift and deflection of the building due to its large height and also torsion and others, so if the structure is proved to be safe in all the above mentioned problems than the structure would be safe in all cases in respect earthquak e.
