Abstract: As the population is growing and land becomes limited and new materials and construction technologies are built together, structural structures of this nature are growing larger and smaller, which are prone to two types of dynamic forces, tectonic drags and wind powers. In developing countries like India the exponential growth of the urban population has prompted a reassessment of the value of high – rise irregular buildings. For the construction of high – rise irregular buildings, the impact of gust loads is to be remembered. In India, gust caused numerous structural failures. IS 875:2015 Part-3 considers the gust loads on various kinds of irregular structures and IS 1893 (Part-1):2016 recognizes tectonic drags. The study focuses on peculiar constructions of different aspect ratios i.e. the impact of tears and tectonic drags. H B ratio, with H being the overall construction system height; and B being the base width of the structure frame using STADD , Structure mass irregularities using E-TABS; from this paper we are examining the impact of wind (gusts), seismic (tectonical) load on building height by changing the number of floors with a the aspect rate. H B ratio Many researchers design a system that is immune to tectonic drags, but the tectonic drag framework can not be built without causing damage. A large proportion of existing urban infrastructure is composed of vertical irregular structures.
