Load Balanced Beams in Perimeter Frames of High-rise Buildings for Efficient Transfer of Column Loads

Mark Sarkisian, Stan Korista & Ernest Makkai, SOM

Using post-tensioned concrete perimeter frames for transferring columns in high-rise structures is an effective solution to strength and serviceability. These load balanced transfers allow columns...

Validation of the Aerodynamic Model Method

Daryl W. Boggs, Cermak Peterka Peterson, Inc.

The principles of aeroelastic and aerodynamic models are distinguished, and aeroelastic magnification is identified as a possible source of unacceptable error in the latter type...
