He has conducted research into the behavior of tall buildings and shear wall structures and is the author of a number of published papers on torsion analysis and multistory construction projects. Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: My library Help Advanced Book Search.
Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction
He has a perspicuous writing style with a flair for lucidity rather than obscurity, and on occasion even highlights it with strictural engineering humor. It also examines the behavior and design of buildings subject to inelastic cyclic deformation during large earthquakes—with an emphasis on visual and descriptive analysis—as well as the anatomy of seismic provisions and the rehabilitation of seismically vulnerable steel buildings.
He has held positions as a taranatg project engineer in Chicago, Illinois, and as vice president and principal-in-charge with two consulting firms in Houston, Texas.
This book is a must for any serious engineer who truly wants to understand the gestalt of steel and composite tall building design. Bridging the gap between the conceptual approach and computer analysis, Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Taranath Limited preview – This book is not a thin publication or a die-fast text; it is truly a labor desigm love.
Today, his greatest joy is sharing that enthusiasm with owners, architects, and fellow structural engineers to develop imaginative solutions for seemingly impossible structures.
Summary As software skills rise to the forefront of design concerns, the art of structural conceptualization is often minimized. The final chapter deals with the art of connection builfings.
A comprehensive design reference, this book guides engineers to visualize, conceptualize, and realize structural systems for tall buildings that are elegant and economical. Toggle navigation Additional Book Information.
Steel and Composite Construction. The rigor comes later, after the conceptual ideas have coalesced. He has extensive experience in the design of concrete, steel, and composite tall buildings and has served as principal-in-charge for many notable high-rise buildings.
