Technical Report III

This report analyzes the existing lateral structural system of Office Building-G. This report includes checks of drift, torsion and overturning. Lateral members were checked to verify that they have adequate strength for the controlling load cases. Click on the image to the left to view a PDF copy of Technical Report III.

Technical Report II

This report studied the feasibility of alternate floor systems for Office Building-G. The systems which were explored are: one-way slab on post-tensioned girders, precast hollow core plank, composite metal deck, two-way flat plate.
