This study guide book contain information regarding ideal design conditions of structural types of tall building, The structural engineer must accommodate the following restrictions to the most efficient design: the architect’s internal planning of space, the materials selected, the methods of construction common to the area, the architect’s choice of external cladding and decorations, the restrictions of the site, the locations of MEP (HVAC, electrical and plumbing) systems, the magnitude of the expected horizontal loads, and the proportions and height determined by owner and architectural preferences. Structural Concepts: Measures of Structural Efficiency: 1. The bending rigidity index (BRI), 2. The shear rigidity index (SRI). Structural Forms: 1. Rigid frames,
2. Braced frames, 3. In-filled frames, 4. Shear walls, 5. Wall frame, 6. Framed tube, 7. Outrigger braced, 8. Suspended, 9. Core structures, 10. Space structures, and 11. Hybrid structures.
