Senior Capstone Project (CPEP):

The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web‐based project and information center. It
contains material produced for a year‐long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing
central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural Engineering. For an explanation of this capstone design course and its requirements click here.

Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work‐inprogress
for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Tyler Meek. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; herefore,investigation results may vary from the original

Technical Report 1:
Existing Structural Conditions

Technical Report 1 investigates the existing structural conditions of Res Tower II and the loads that it is required to carry. This document includes detailed descriptions of the individual structural elements, calculations of the gravity and lateral loads and spot checks of typical members for adequate strength.

Technical Report 2:
Pro-Con Structural Study of Alternate Floor Systems

Technical Report 2 evaluates the feasibility of alternative floor systems for use in Res Tower II. This document includes the design and detailed assessment of three floor systems. Each floor system is then compared using structural and non-structural criteria.

Technical Report 3:
Lateral System Analysis and Confirmation Design

Technical Report 3 analyzes the existing lateral system and evaluates its adequacy for both strength and serviceability criteria. This document includes a detailed assesment of the lateral system using an Etabs computer model and hand calculations.
