Structural analysis and design of tall buildings by Bungale S Taranath( Book )

28 editions published between 1988 and 2016 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As software skills rise to the forefront of design concerns, the art of structural conceptualization is often minimized. Structural engineering, however, requires the marriage of artistic and intuitive designs with mathematical accuracy and detail. Computer analysis works to solidify and extend the creative idea or concept that might have started out as a sketch on the back of an envelope ... Bridging the gap between the conceptual approach and computer analysis, Structural Analysis and Design of Tall Buildings: Steel and Composite Construction integrates the design aspects of steel and composite buildings in one volume. Using conceptual thinking and basic strength of material concepts as foundations, the book shows engineers how to use imperfect information to estimate the answer to larger and more complex design problems by breaking them down into more manageable pieces. Written by an accomplished structural engineer, this book discusses the behavior and design of lateral load-resisting systems; the gravity design of steel and composite floors and columns; and methods for determining wind loads. It also examines the behavior and design of buildings subject to inelastic cyclic deformation during large earthquakes--with an emphasis on visual and descriptive analysis--as well as the anatomy of seismic provisions and the rehabilitation of seismically vulnerable steel buildings ... -- Book Description
Wind and earthquake resistant buildings : structural analysis and design by Bungale S Taranath( Book )

24 editions published between 2004 and 2019 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following a brief overview of the battering forces of nature, Wind and Earthquake Resistant Buildings: Structural Analysis and Design provides structural engineers with a uniquely practical perspective on all aspects of steel, concrete and composite use in the design of buildings including wind effects and seismic design." "Using numerous examples and illustration, Dr. Taranath demonstrates how to execute virtually all the recent methods and ideas for creating cost-efficient designs. Comprehensive, systematic, and thoroughly graspable, this fundamental resource offers engineers at all levels of experience the tools they need to formulate structural systems that address the specific needs of project clients."--Jacket
Reinforced concrete design of tall buildings by Bungale S Taranath( Book )

15 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An exploration of the world of concrete as it applies to the construction of buildings, Reinforced Concrete Design of Tall Buildings provides a practical perspective on all aspects of reinforced concrete used in the design of structures, with particular focus on tall and ultra-tall buildings. Written by Dr. Bungale S. Taranath, this work explains the fundamental principles and state-of-the-art technologies required to build vertical structures as sound as they are eloquent. Dozens of cases studies of tall buildings throughout the world, many designed by Dr. Taranath, provide in-depth insight on why and how specific structural system choices are made." "The book bridges the gap between two approaches: one based on intuitive skills and experience and the other based on computer skills and analytical techniques." "Dr. Taranath shows how to create sound, cost-efficient high rise structures. His lucid and thorough explanations provide the tools required to derive systems that gracefully resist the battering forces of nature while addressing the specific needs of building owners, developers, and architects. The book is packed with broad-ranging material from fundamental principles to the state-of-the-art technologies and includes techniques thoroughly developed to be highly adaptable. Offering complete guidance, instructive examples, and color illustrations, the author develops several approaches for designing tall buildings. He demonstrates the benefits of blending imaginative problem solving and rational analysis for creating better structural systems."--Jacket
Steel, concrete, and composite design of tall buildings by Bungale S Taranath( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and Chinese and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taranath provides case studies of buildings constructed in the past two decades to give insight into why and how structural systems were chosen. Particular emphasis is placed on wind and seismic forces
Tall building design : steel, concrete, and composite systems by Bungale S Taranath( )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering guidance on how to use code-based procedures while at the same time providing an understanding of why provisions are necessary, Tall Building Design: Steel, Concrete, and Composite Systems methodically explores the structural behavior of steel, concrete, and composite members and systems. This text establishes the notion that design is a creative process, and not just an execution of framing proposals. It cultivates imaginative approaches by presenting examples specifically related to essential building codes and standards. Tying together precision and accuracy - it also bridges the gap between two design approaches - one based on initiative skill and the other based on computer skill. The book explains loads and load combinations typically used in building design, explores methods for determining design wind loads using the provisions of ASCE 7-10, and examines wind tunnel procedures. It defines conceptual seismic design, as the avoidance or minimization of problems created by the effects of seismic excitation. It introduces the concept of performance-based design (PBD). It also addresses serviceability considerations, prediction of tall building motions, damping devices, seismic isolation, blast-resistant design, and progressive collapse. The final chapters explain gravity and lateral systems for steel, concrete, and composite buildings -- Publisher's description
