Viewpoint: The Nepal earthquake and the rise in extreme events – implications for structural enginee

In the light of this year’s earthquake in Nepal, Harsha Mehta argues that the increasing global frequency of extreme events requires structural engineers to move away from prescriptive codes to a performance-based design process.

Tianjin CTF Finance Centre: wind, form and structure

The Tianjin CTF Finance Centre is a 530m super-tall building nearing completion in the People's Republic of China. For a building of this height, wind forces and associated wind-induced motion in the upper levels can become dominant factors in the structural design of its foundations and lateral-stability system. This article describes how an initial aerodynamic shape-optimisation workshop allowed the design team to develop a finely tuned architectural form capable of minimising the detrimental effects of vortex shedding.
