Examines structural aspects of high rise buildings, particularly fundamental approaches to the analysis of the behavior of different forms of building structures including frame, shear wall, tubular, core and outrigger-braced systems. Introductory chapters discuss the forces to which the structure is subjected, design criteria which are of the greatest relevance to tall buildings, and various structural forms which have developed over the years since the first skyscrapers were built at the turn of the century. A major chapter is devoted to the modeling of real structures for both preliminary and final analyses. Considerable attention is devoted to the assessment of the stability of the structure, and the significance of creep and shrinkage is discussed. A final chapter is devoted to the dynamic response of structures subjected to wind and earthquake forces. Includes both accurate computer-based and approximate methods of analysis.

Synopsis:

25 years of research on tall building structures has resulted in this comprehensive working reference. In this period of time there has been an evolution of radically new forms of structures, resulting in the need for new methods of structural analysis. All of those methods are covered here, with special attention paid to a detailed review of the main possibilities of high rise structures, and a complete presentation of approximate and accurate methods of analysis. Also included are useful design curves, a selective bibliography, and many examples to demonstrate calculation sequences in analysis.

About the Author:

Bryan Stafford Smith and Alex Coull are the authors of Tall Building Structures: Analysis and Design, published by Wiley.
