about

This book discusses performance-based seismic and wind-resistant design for high-rise building structures, with a particular focus on establishing an integrated approach for performance-based wind engineering, which is currently less advanced than seismic engineering. This book also provides a state-of-the-art review of numerous methodologies, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), extreme value analysis, structural optimization, vibration control, pushover analysis, response spectrum analysis, modal parameter identification for the assessment of the wind-resistant and seismic performance of tall buildings in the design stage and actual tall buildings in use. Several new structural optimization methods, including the augmented optimality criteria method, have been developed and employed in the context of performance-based design. This book is a valuable resource for students, researchers and engineers in the field of civil and structural engineering.

M.F. Huang is currently Associate Professor of College of Civil Engineering and Architecture at Zhejiang University. He received his BSc in 1999 and MSc in 2002 from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China and his PhD in 2008 from Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His current research interests include wind e...
