Course Objective

The main objective of the course is to teach the basic concepts of design and structural systems of tall building structures with computer and design applications to undergraduate and graduate students.

Course Content

Examination of the methods of analysis and design criteria, behavior and modeling for tall buildings. Cast-in place concrete in tall building design: high-strength concrete, concrete-filled steel tubes, ductile structural walls. Steel in tall building design: steel moment resisting frame, steel braced frames, semi-rigid connections in steel frames, cold-formed steel in tall buildings. Mixed structural systems: tube, braced tube in very tall buildings. Foundations for Tall Building Structures. Computer and design applications.

Learning Outcomes

An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering, an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data, and an ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering design and practice
