Introduction
Project 1 is about design a high-rise office building by analysis the core and floor system, lateral load distribution, wind and seismic load to determine how the
tall building behaviors under each cases.(e.g. the deflection of typical members, the force carried out by six different cells, the overturning bending moment
under wind and seismic load)

The perimeter of the building is as defined by floor system developed for Part A of this project. The floors crossing section of the tall building is 42*42m which
has a 19*19m core areas and has 42 floors in total. Project B is only consider one load condition being the wind from the south and the wind load for each of the
orthogonal directions can be based on the project area of building on to a surface perpendicular to the wind direction. For this load case determine manually the
percentage of wind load resisted by each of six core cells by hand calibration.

Part C is determine the lateral along-wind loads for the north south direction only up to the height of the building by using dynamic method and finds the baseoverturning moment. In addition, also determine the lateral north south design earthquake load up the height of building and compare which of the two loads is
dictates.

Part D is about developing a simple SpaceGass model using a column element for the two conditions. Carry out a lateral load analysis for the north south
direction with the appropriate eccentricity by applying the derived along-wind case from the Part C. First model will have just six column elements going up the
height of the building. The second model will have six columns linked by header beams. By using SpaceGass to analysis how the building behaviors under two
different models e.g. deflection at the top of the building and the forces at the base of the building.

the extend of coupling action is limiting. Note: the deflection at the top of the building is hand calculated by using the formulas below: Where W is the force action on the top of the building. there will be a low flexural stiffness. Figure 10 graphically explain the above reason behind the header beam function. E is Young’s Modulus of the concrete. Figure 10: Schematic of a coupled core system 28 . Model A just thin slab acting between walls and due to the slim nature of the slab.CVEN90024 Design of High-rise Structures Mengmeng DONG 324292 Result:  Deflection at the top of the building for Model A and Model B The deflection at the top of the building is 850mm and 300mm respectively to Model A and Model B. It’s obviously that Model B gives a much smaller deflection compare to Model A. However in Model B by introducing beams between the cantilever elements this flexural stiffness can be greatly enhanced hence increasing the coupling action and hence improving the overall lateral resistance. l is the height of the building.
