UNIT I INTRODUCTION 9
The tall building in the urban context – The tall building and its support structure –
Development of high rise building structures – General planning considerations – Dead
loads – Live loads – Construction loads – Snow, rain and ice loads – Wind loads –
Seismic loading – Water and earth pressure loads – Loads – Loads due to restrained –
Volume changes of material – Impact and dynamic loads – Blast loads – Combination of
UNIT II THE VERTICAL STRUCTURE PLANE 9
Dispersion of vertical forces – Dispersion of lateral forces – Optimum ground level space
– Shear wall arrangement – Behaviour of shear walls under lateral loading – The floor
structure or horizontal building plane floor framing systems – Horizontal bracing –
Composite floor systems – The high rise building as related to assemblage kits skeleton
frame systems – Load bearing wall panel systems – Panel – Frame systems – Multistory
UNIT III COMMON HIGH-RISE BUILDING STRUCTURES AND THEIR
BEHAVIOUR UNDER LOAD 9
The bearing wall structure – The shear core structure – Rigid frame systems – The wall –
Beam structure – Interspatial and staggered truss systems – Frame – Shear wall building
systems – Flat slab building structures – Shear truss – Frame interaction system with rigid
– Belt trusses – Tubular systems – Composite buildings – Comparison of high – Rise
structural systems other design approaches controlling building drift efficient building
forms – The counteracting force or dynamic response.
UNIT IV APPROXIMATE STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF
