Design and Analysis of Tall and Complex Structures

Design and Analysis of Tall and Complex Structures

Preference :

In the past decade, an increasing number of tall buildings and complex structures such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing, and the London Aquatic Center was built. These projects demand that civil and structural engineers have the ability to handle the increasing difficulty in designing even more complicated projects such as tall buildings or structures with complex geometries. The effective design of these types of structures is based on a clear understanding of the behavior of the structures, relevant analysis theory, and method, knowledge of effective numerical modeling software, and of specific design principles. However, it has been noticed that, in the construction industry, most structural engineers find themselves lacking the relevant knowledge. In most universities, the basic design modules are taught to students. However, it is hard to find a module that has a systematic introduction to the design and analysis of tall and complex structures. Therefore, a book in this area is imperative.
