Tall Building Structures: Analysis and Design

Tall Building Structures: Analysis and Design 

Bryan Stafford Smith

Preference :

Examines structural aspects of high rise buildings, particularly fundamental approaches to the analysis of the behavior of different forms of building structures including a frame, shear wall, tubular, core, and outrigger-braced systems. Introductory chapters discuss the forces to which the structure is subjected, design criteria that are of the greatest relevance to tall buildings, and various structural forms that 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.
