Bracings are used in construction of Buildings in order to provide resistance to the forces acting on it. A simple industrial building can deform under lateral loads. The bracing when provided in a planned manner effectively transforms lateral forces due to wind, earthquake and crane surge etc. to the foundation of the building. Thus a system of diagonal or lateral bracing is provided in order give stability to a building. Bracing can be Transverse Bracing and Longitudinal Bracing.
