Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems 

Bungale S. Taranath

Preference :

Tall. buildings. have. a. unique. appeal,. even. an. air. of. romance. and.mystery. associated.with. their. design..The.adoration.that.super-.and.ultratall.buildings.command.lies.in.their.apparent.freedom. from.gravity.loads—they.do.not.just.stand.tall,.they.seem.to.do.so.effortlessly.resisting.gravity.as. well.as.laterally.directed.force.generated.by.wind.gusts.and.seismic.ground.motions. Tall.buildings.have.fascinated.humans.from.the.beginning.of.civilization—the.primary.motivation. was.to.create.monuments.rather.than.human.habitats..Today’s.structures,.on.the.other.hand,. are.human.habitats—not.allowed.by.economics.and.design.to.be.nearly.as.simple,.heavy,.stiff,.and. robust.as.their.relatively.recent.counterparts.such.as.the.Empire.State.Building.of.the.1930s. Although.tall.buildings.are.unique.from.certain.aspects.such.as.consideration.of.lateral.deflection,. their.design,.in.a.manner.of.speaking,.is.similar.to.the.design.of.their.lower.brethren..Thus.the. material.presented.in.this.book.applies.equally.to.not-so-tall.buildings.as.well. d.in.current.design.practice.with.particular.reference. to.the.provisions.of.the.following.publications:
