Technical Report lll      |      11/15/2011

Technical report lll is an in-depth lateral system analysis and confirmatio study. Building off of the lateral design introduction of Technical Report l, this report goes into a detailed analysis of the strength and serviceability characteristics of the Hunter's Point South lateral force resisting system. A 3D computer model in ETABS is used for a detailed design of the structure, and hand calculations are provided to check the model for accuracy. This report looks at system stiffness, deflection and drift control, foundation impact, and strength checks of individual members.




Technical Report ll    |      10/18/2011


Technical report ll is a pro-con structural study of alternate floor systems. Three alternative systems were analyzed and compared with the existing system to decide whether or not it would be a viable alternative to the structural design.




Technical Report l    |      09/22/2011

Technical report l is a structural concepts and existing conditions report. It starts with an overview of the exisiting structural design, codes, materials, and loads. It then goes into a summary of the wind and seismic loads applied using ASCE7-10.


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 Michael Payne. 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; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.
