Optimal outrigger system placement and configuration for high-rise building

Structural mechanics

Engineering of high-rise building is one of construction sector priorities today. Wind loads have significant impact on upper part of a building horizontal displacement. In this article different high-rise building structural schemes are presented. Analysis of 350-meter-high building was done. The main goal of the research is determination of optimal stiffener ring structural scheme among solid wall, frame and truss structure. Calculation of model was conducted with the help of SCAD Office software system, which use finite-element analysis. According to results, the most effective stiffener ring structure is truss structure.
