Design and analysis of tall and complex structures pdf
Push-over analysis for concrete structures of tall building
Journal of Shanghai University English Edition. In this paper, push-over analysis for tall concrete structures was made and a corresponding computer program was given. Several kinds of elements in the program were considered to meet the demand of tall buildings with complex structural type. These elements included beam-column element for beams and columns, single slice wall element and three vertical line element for walls, and tube-wall element for tubes. Computational example for verifying the models indicates that the result obtained by this method is identical with a well-known test result and the program can be used to search for the full process of structural reaction, even the softening stage of the structure. With this push-over analysis method, an actual tall building with complex structural type was analyzed, and the result has been put into practice of the structural design of the building.

The design of tall buildings structures involves several rather complex design activities, including data capture, modelling, conceptual design, and structural analysis and detailing. While traditional design approaches employ a 'trial and error' method, Design and Analysis of Tall Buildings Structures provides structural designers with a systematic approach to anticipate and solve issues for tall and complex structures. Design and Analysis of Tall Buildings Structures begins with a clear and rigorous exposition of theory along with an explanation of the basic design issues encountered in the planning stages of Tall building projects.
