The structural design of a cross-linked reinforced concrete building in Sendai, Japan

The structural design of a three-storey apartment block in Sendai, Japan is described. This structure uses cross-linked reinforced concrete slabs to connect two blocks of accommodation and hence improve the performance of the structure under seismic loading. As a result lighter columns could be used around the building perimeter as well as flat slab construction for all floors and roof.
