Thoroughly updated, this superbly illustrated handbook provides a uniquely practical perspective on all aspects of steel, concrete, and composite use in the design of tall buildings. It alerts professionals to the latest codes and ANSI standards and includes dozens of case studies of important buildings throughout the world, providing in-depth insight into why and how specific structural system choices were made. It also discusses recent studies of seismic vulnerability. . .the effect of wind and seismic forces on design decisions. . .the use of lateral bracing concepts and gravity-based systems. . .computer modeling techniques that forecast the response of buildings to various forces. . .and much more.
