Abstract :

Nowadays the client and architects are looking to have a more floor space utilization ration and unique shape of modern skyscrapers on one hand. The Engineers still tend to optimize a structure to a minimum of weight and optimum passing stress ratios on other hand, which are the hard criterion that available for Engineers during the design of the structures, eventually this criterion leads to structures that are expensive and have a poor quality and complex constructability during the executions phase. For this presentation the 60 story composite steel-concrete twisted peripheral building has been taken as an example to illustrate that the selection of adequate steel members and constructible connections, which leads to have a time reduction, high quality of the structure as a whole and within the budget. A three dimensional 60 stories structure has taken by considering the 4 cylindrical grids spacing 6m, tangential Ï´ 30o with floor height at base, rest are 5m and 4m respectively. The arch Veirenderal system has been introduced to support the planted column on the grand entrance of the building.
