Column Axial Shortening in Tall Buildings

When a vertical compressive load is applied to a column, it shortens. Axial shortening takes place in all structures but when reaching great heights...

Application of Wind Load to Shear Walls – A Manual Approach

The higher a building a goes, the higher the effects of lateral forces such as wind on the structure become. Shear walls are...

High Rise Timber Building to be Constructed in Tokyo

Mitsui Fudosan and Takenaka Corporation has commenced plans to develop a 70 metres high timber building in Tokyo's Nihonbashi district. The 17 storey building when...

P-Delta Analysis

P-delta is a geometric non-linear effect that occurs in structures that are subjected to compressive loads and lateral displacement. Under the action of compressive...

Free Vibration of Masts

Tall masts are used in a variety of applications such as telecommunication, radio/television broadcasting, supporting lighting fixtures on the highway, raising flags, etc....

Structural Stability of a Ten-Storey Braced Steel Frame

Structural stability is broadly defined as the capacity of a structure to recover equilibrium. As a topic in structural engineering, it is concerned with...

Vortex Shedding and Wind Load Analysis of Tall Buildings

In fluid dynamics, a Kármán vortex street is a repeating pattern of swirling vortices caused by the unsteady separation of flow of a fluid...

Design for Fensheng 101 Skyscraper Unveiled

The design for the Fensheng 101 Skyscraper has been unveiled by GWP Architects. The project has a total construction area of approximately 81,000 square...

Definition of a Tall Building

The term ‘tall building’ is relative to the environment under consideration. A four storey building located among bungalows in an area will easily be...

Natural Frequency Analysis of Multistorey Frames Using Staad Pro

https://youtu.be/dqxGIy9fcvo Vibration (or Oscillation) is a time-dependent, repeated motion which a body undergoes when it is excited in its natural state or by an external...

On the Natural Frequency of Multi-Storey Buildings

A multi-storey building can develop lateral vibrations in the two principal directions and torsional vibration around its vertical shear centre axis. The natural frequency...

Aspects of Modelling of Shear Walls

Shear walls are structural elements usually employed in tall buildings to assist in resisting lateral loads. Shear walls can be solid or pierced (coupled),...

Cost of Reinforcement Works in Nigeria

Installation of reinforcements is an important item of work in the construction of reinforced concrete structures. The cost of reinforcement works therefore significantly impacts...

Design of Shear Walls

Shear walls are structural members that provide additional lateral stiffness to a building by resisting shear, moment, and axial forces, which are produced due...

Technical Guide: Detailing and Arrangement of Beam Reinforcements on Site
