Thirty-one-storey Flats in Structural Steelwork

This paper deals with the design of high flats where the height/base width ratio is such that limitation of deflection becomes the criterion in design. It discusses first of all the estimation of wind forces and a comparison with American practice. Both portal and cantilever methods of design are considered and the results of the cantilever method are compared with the results obtained from an exact computer analysis. H. McClusky
