Co-published with the International Code Council and the Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI), this volume presents detailed, step-by-step guidelines to the structural design and engineering of tall buildings using reinforced concrete. Taranath, a consulting engineer based in Las Vegas, details the current codes and research behind sound structural practice with chapters describing how engineers factor in gravity components, lateral load-resistance, wind loads, and design and implementation of seismic factors in new buildings and added to older ones. Taranath's expertise of various building types and situations and the latest technological developments in structural components is grounded throughout the text in a dedication to the fundamental principles of structural engineering, leading the reader through the practical applications that make buildings conform to code and performance. This volume will be essential to consulting engineers on all projects with tall buildings, as well as in the graduate student classroom. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
