Abstract

This paper presents an investigation into the performance of tubular shaped structures subjected to both vertical and lateral loadings. A tubular shaped tall building was used as a case example and analyses were carried out using the finite element program. Several analyses were carried out on the tubular structures as well as on a standard rectangular framed structure, which is considered as the control. Two models of the tubular shaped structure were considered in order to obtain the better model. Results of the investigation seem to suggest that the tubular shaped tall buildings can be an efficient and effective modem building
