Tall Buildings: Structural Systems and Aerodynamic Form

Tall Buildings: Structural Systems and Aerodynamic Form

Mehmet Halis Günel


The structural challenges of construction 800 metres into the sky are gigantic, and contain numerous components which do not affect low-rise development. This booklet focusses on those components in particular to supply the architectural and structural wisdom which must be taken under consideration for you to layout tall structures effectively. In providing examples of metal, strengthened concrete, and composite structural platforms for such constructions, it is shown that wind load has a crucial impression at the architectural and structural layout. The aerodynamic method of tall structures is taken into account during this context, as is earthquake caused lateral loading.

Case reports of a few of the world’s such a lot iconic structures, illustrated with complete color images, structural plans and axonometrics, will carry to existence the layout demanding situations which they provided to architects and structural engineers. The Empire country development, the Burj Khalifa, Taipei one hundred and one and the HSB Turning Torso are quite a few examples of the constructions whose real-life necessities are used to provide an explanation for and illustrate center layout rules, and their next influence at the complete structure.
