Tall Building Design : Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems
This book examines the behavior of structural members and systems to aid in the structural design of tall buildings in conjunction with the latest building codes. These code provisions are subject to change periodically. Familiarity with current methodologies is essential to designing structures that comply with legally-adapted standards in a safe, economic, and efficient manner. However, the first nine chapters explain the fundamental principles of structural engineering in such a manner as to be entirely independent of code regulations.
