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.
