Structural Adhesive Joints Design, Analysis and Testing by K.L. Mittal and S. K. Panigrahi

DESCRIPTION Among the myriad techniques available for mating/joining similar anddissimilar materials (metals, plastics, glass, ceramics and composites) theadhesive bonding technology is preferred and widely used because it offersmany advantages vis-a-vis the other methods of joining, e.g., mechanicalfastening, riveting, nailing, brazing and welding.Adhesive bonding is used for mundane (gluing of toys) to highly sophisticatedapplications. Most structures …

Guidelines for Performance Based Seismic Design of Tall Buildings

These Guidelines include the seismic design of structural elements normally assigned as part of the seismic-force-resisting system as well as structural elements whose primary function is to support gravity loads. Except for exterior cladding, design of nonstructural components is not specifically included within the scope of these Guidelines. Design for nonstructural systems should conform to …

Lateral Systems for Tall Buildings by Kermin Chok

The advances in three-dimensional structural analysis and computing resources have allowed the efficient and safe design of increasingly taller structures. These structures are the consequence of increasing urban densification and economic viability. The modern skyscraper has and will thus continue to feature prominently in the landscape of urban cities. The trend towards progressively taller structures …
