Technical Reports





Tech Report #1

In Technical Report 1, an analysis was performed on the existing conditions of the North Shore Equitable Building in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. This analysis includes a brief look at the architectural and functional features of the building and an in depth look at the structural systems of the building.




Tech Report #2

In Technical Report 2, analyses were performed on the existing structural system and three alternate structural systems for the purpose of selecting a potential replacement for the existing system. The criteria for evaluation include floor system weight, depth, cost and architectural features.



Tech Report #3

In Technical Report 3, an analysis of the existing lateral system was performed using a 3D computer model to determine the controlling load case and check deflections, overturning, and member strengths.
