The wind load is the most impotent factor that determines the design of all building frames over 10 storeys. Building frames taller than 10 storeys would generally require additional steel for lateral system. Under the action of a natural wind, gusts and other aerodynamic forces will continuously affect a tall building can be estimated by the dynamic response analysis considering the characteristics of temporal and spatial fluctuating wind pressure and the house, dome, high-rise building lattice type structure dynamic characteristics of the building .

Support reaction, Displacement, storey drift, moments, axial force and shear force play a very important role in the analysis of building frame on slopping ground. Accurate analysis of these Support reactions, storey drifts, moments, axial force and shear force with respect to various wind velocity and different sloping conditions is essential for design purpose. Wind analysis of different height building frame on sloping ground considering different load combination will help in a realistic and economic design of building frame on sloping ground.
