Analysis and Design of Framed Tube Structures for Tall Concrete Buildings

The behaviour of framed tube structures is discussed from an overall structural system point of view. The influence of various structural parameters is emphasized for achieving better tubular behaviour. The concept of the equivalent reduced plane frame modelling technique is used for developing a series of 'influence' curves for the preliminary analysis and design. An example problem is worked out using these curves and the results are compared with a more exact solution by the computer. Fazlur R. Khan and Navinchandra R. Amin
