# How to study this subject

OBJECTIVE
At the end of this course the student should have understood the problems associated with
large heights of structures with respect to loads (wind and earthquake and deflections of the
structure). He should know the rudimentary principles of designing tall buildings as per the
existing course.
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 -
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 Box Systems.
UNIT III COMMON HIGH-RISE BUILDING STRUCTURES AND THEIR BEHAVIOUR
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 BUILDINGS 9
Approximate Analysis of Bearing Wall Buildings The Cross Wall Structure - The Long Wall
Structure The Rigid Frame Structure Approximate Analysis for Vertical Loading - Approximate
Analysis for Lateral Loading - Approximate Design of Rigid Frame Buildings-Lateral Deformation
of Rigid Frame Buildings The Rigid Frame - Shear Wall Structure - The Vierendeel Structure -
The Hollow Tube Structure. 92
UNIT V OTHER HIGH-RISE BUILDING STRUCTURE 9
Deep - Beam Systems -High-Rise Suspension Systems - Pneumatic High -Rise Buildings -
Space Frame Applied to High - Rise Buildings - Capsule Architecture.
