Discover the standard approaches for the design and management of tall buildings.

The presenters are both integral members of an ASCE task group that delivered the recent guidance MOP 143. This offers detailed guidance on industry standard practices and approaches for the design and performance of tall buildings for wind.

They will discuss the key findings for structural engineers revealed by their experience, extensive research and engagement with an array of stakeholders involved in the design and management of tall buildings.
 

Learning outcomes

  • Guidance on modelling building’s structural properties such as stiffness and damping
  • How to model uncertainties in wind climate, wind loading, and other effects

Intended for

Structural engineers of any level and also architects, wind engineers, and developers.
