Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems
Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite
Addresses the Question Frequently Proposed to the Designer by Architects: "Can We Do This? Offering guidance on how to use code-based procedures while at the same time providing an understanding of why provisions are necessary, Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems methodically explores the structural behavior of steel, concrete, and composite members and systems. This text establishes the notion that design is a creative process, and not just an execution of framing proposals. It cultivates imaginative approaches by presenting examples specifically related to essential building codes and standards. Tying together precision and accuracy―it also bridges the gap between two design approaches―one based on initiative skill and the other based on computer skill. The book explains loads and load combinations typically used in building design, explores methods for determining design wind loads using the provisions of ASCE 7-10, and examines wind tunnel procedures. It defines conceptual seismic design, as the avoidance or minimization of problems created by the effects of seismic excitation. It introduces the concept of performance-based design (PBD). It also addresses serviceability considerations, prediction of tall building motions, damping devices, seism...

Preliminary Design of High-Rise Buildings in Non-Seismic Regions
Preliminary Design of High-Rise Buildings in Non-Seismic
High-rise buildings continue to be built in increasing numbers throughout the world. However, they quickly become impractically expensive if structural needs are not considered early. Similarly attempting to build an irrational design can waste a lot of money. It has been said that 50% of the cost of the structural frame costs are affected by preliminary design, whereas detailed design (e.g. refinement of reinforcement in a reinforced concrete structure) affects a small percentage only. This book discusses what should be considered at the preliminary design stage of a high-rise. The information can also be used in the checking of designs produced by computer. The focus is on European design practice. The discussion includes the following: the origin of lateral loads; vortex shedding, lateral load resisting systems; effect of wind load on tall buildings; construction tolerances; shear wall layouts; basic acceleration limits; the importance of the P-delta phenomenon. Gravity systems for high-rises are no different to those of low-rise buildings so little time is spent discussing these. Although tall buildings are commonly constructed using steel or composite construction, this book focuses on concrete buildings as they are especially challenging to design. A case study is presented...

The Space Between: Urban Places, Public Spaces & Tall Buildings
The Space Between: Urban Places, Public Spaces &
It is becoming increasingly accepted that greater urban density is required to achieve more sustainable patterns of life, in order to reduce energy consumption and thus combat climate change. The concentration of people in denser cities sharing space, infrastructure, and facilities offers much greater energy efficiency than the expanded horizontal city, which requires more land usage as well as higher energy expenditure to facilitate infrastructure and mobility. However, the full implications of this push to greater density, especially vertical density, are not fully understood, and cities around the world including both emerging and established skyscraper cities are grappling with the question of how to move towards greater height and density while still maintaining a high quality of life.As the world population continues to densify, the need for urban amenities becomes amplified; cities must increasingly buffer or compensate for an expanding urban population. The development of open spaces of various scales will help offset the effects of neighborhoods increasingly filled with tall buildings. This CTBUH Technical Guide analyzes how to approach urban habitat adjoining tall buildings, highlighting case studies of open spaces at varying scales to help readers understand the ingred...

Performance-Based Seismic Design for Tall Buildings
Performance-Based Seismic Design for Tall
Performance-Based Seismic Design (PBSD) is a structural design methodology that has become more common in urban centers around the world, particularly for the design of high-rise buildings. The primary benefit of PBSD is that it substantiates exceptions to prescribed code requirements, such as height limits applied to specific structural systems, and allows project teams to demonstrate higher performance levels for structures during a seismic event. However, the methodology also involves significantly more effort in the analysis and design stages, with verification of building performance required at multiple seismic demand levels using Nonlinear Response History Analysis (NRHA). The design process also requires substantial knowledge of overall building performance and analytical modeling, in order to proportion and detail structural systems to meet specific performance objectives. This CTBUH Technical Guide provides structural engineers, developers, and contractors with a general understanding of the PBSD process by presenting case studies that demonstrate the issues commonly encountered when using the methodology, along with their corresponding solutions. The guide also provides references to the latest industry guidelines, as applied in the western United States, with the go...

Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction
Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel
As software skills rise to the forefront of design concerns, the art of structural conceptualization is often minimized. Structural engineering, however, requires the marriage of artistic and intuitive designs with mathematical accuracy and detail. Computer analysis works to solidify and extend the creative idea or concept that might have started out as a sketch on the back of an envelope.From Sketches on the Back of an Envelope to Elegant, Economical Buildings—The Art of Structural ConceptualizationBridging the gap between the conceptual approach and computer analysis, Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction integrates the design aspects of steel and composite buildings in one volume. Using conceptual thinking and basic strength of material concepts as foundations, the book shows engineers how to use imperfect information to estimate the answer to larger and more complex design problems by breaking them down into more manageable pieces. Written by an accomplished structural engineer, this book discusses the behavior and design of lateral load-resisting systems; the gravity design of steel and composite floors and columns; and methods for determining wind loads. It also examines the behavior and design of buildings subject to inelastic...
