Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings

Structural systems for tall buildings have undergone a dramatic evolution throughout the previous two decades and into the 2010s. Developments in structural form have historically been realized as a response to emerging architectural trends in high-rise-building design. In the 1980s, international style and modernist high-rise designs, characterized by prismatic, repetitive vertical geometries and flat-topped roofs, were predominant. The development of the original tubular systems for tall buildings was indeed predicated upon an overall building form of constant or smoothly varying profile. The rigid discipline of the exterior tower form has since been replaced in many cases by the highly articulated vertical modulations of the building envelope characteristic of the present-day high-rise expressions. This general discontinuity and erosion of the exterior façade have led to a new generation of tall building structural systems that respond to the more flexible and idiosyncratic requirements of an increasingly varied architectural esthetic.
