The book deals with the geotechnical analysis and design of foundation systems for high-rise buildings and other complex structures with a distinctive soil-structure interaction. The basics of the analysis of stability and serviceability, necessary soil investigations, important technical regulations and quality and safety assurance are explained and possibilities for optimised foundation systems are given. Additionally, special aspects of foundation systems such as geothermal activated foundation systems and the reuse of existing foundations are described and illustrated by examples from engineering practice.

"If you're an engineer or architect, you can't afford to be without this unique database of structural systems used in the design of some of the most important tall buildings erected to date." "Structural Systems for Tall Buildings reviews all major types of structural systems, including lateral load resisting systems ... gravity load resisting systems ... and systems for the future. The book explains how each is typically used for a given design problem, and discusses the pros and cons for each major type." "You'll find a handy classification system of tall buildings by structural type - plus solutions to special problems such as floor vibrations, damping for structural sway, lateral load design, and new experimental structural designs like outrigger stabilizers." "Filled with hundreds of drawings and photographs, this incomparable sourcebook features contributions from some of the most renowned engineers in the world." "With the help of this expert guide, you'll always be able to choose the best structural option for any project - one that can handle expected loads, is cost-effective and efficient to construct, and delivers the architectural solution sought by the client."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

What constitutes a high-rise building? A high-rise is, in fact, any building with more than 9 storeys and not just those striking skyscrapers which shape modern city skylines. In the past architects who designed such structures used to be the exception but in the last 10 years more and more architectural offices have begun to focus on this type of building. However, the sheer complexity of designing and planning the construction of a high-rise as opposed to other building types requires a wealth of specialized experience and expertise. The High-Rise Manual is the first comprehensive reference work on this subject. All relevant aspects of such an undertaking are examined in detail by some 24 specialist authors. Each step is extensively documented including the initial project planning, the building organisation, the laying of the foundations, the supporting structure, the building technology, the office design, and the Facility Management. Theoretical contributions present the basic principles of select

Comprehensive and up-to-date- the classic visual guide to the basics of building construction For twenty-five years, Building Construction Illustrated has offered an outstanding introduction to the principles of building construction. Now this Third Edition has been expertly revised and updated to address the latest advances in materials, building technology, and code requirements. Complete with more than 1,000 illustrations, the book moves through each of the key stages of the design process, from site selection to building components, mechanical systems, and finishes. Topics within each chapter are organized according to the CSI MasterFormat(TM), making the book extremely easy to use. Special features of this edition include integrated coverage of environmentally friendly materials, sustainable building construction strategies, and ADA requirements, as well as the inclusion of both metric and standard U.S. measurements throughout the book. With its clear presentation of the basic concepts underlying building construction, Building Construction Illustrated, Third Edition equips students and professionals in all areas of architecture and construction with useful guidelines for approaching virtually any new materials or techniques they may encounter in building planning, design, and construction.

Even in the earliest stages of the design process, architects must be aware of the impact that environmental factors, building codes, and structural demands will have on a building. Newly revised and updated, the "rules of thumb" in this valuable reference make it possible to complete preliminary design work without spending too much time investigating technical issues.

Structural Design of Low Rise Buildings in Cold Formed Steel Reinforced Masonry and Structural Timber

Structural Design of Low Rise Buildings in Cold Formed Steel  Reinforced Masonry  and Structural Timber

In typical low-rise buildings constructed of reinforced masonry, structural wood,
and cold-formed steel, relatively low building weights and applied loads result in
significantly lower foundation costs than in mid-rise and high-rise construction. ...
whereas other types of construction in these materials within the low-rise building
context very rarely result in foundation systems other than shallow footings.

A concise guide to the structural design of low-rise buildings in cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber This practical reference discusses the types of low-rise building structural systems, outlines the design process, and explains how to determine structural loadings and load paths pertinent to low-rise buildings. Characteristics and properties of materials used in the construction of cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber buildings are described along with design requirements. The book also provides an overview of noncomposite and composite open-web joist floor systems. Design code requirements referenced by the 2009 International Building Code are used throughout. This is an ideal resource for structural engineering students, professionals, and those preparing for licensing examinations. Structural Design of Low-Rise Buildings in Cold-Formed Steel, Reinforced Masonry, and Structural Timber covers: Low-rise building systems Loads and load paths in low-rise buildings Design of cold-formed steel structures Structural design of reinforced masonry Design of structural timber Structural design with open-web joists
