Technical Report 1
Technical Report 1 reviews the existing conditions of George Pearl Hall and contains the results of a structural analysis from the gravity loads on typical framing elements. An analysis was performed on typical framing elements; a floor slab, column, beam, girder, and a truss. The analysis was carried out on the structure using building codes and Engineering standards. In addition, the lateral loads imposed on the building due to seismic and wind forces were determined.
Technical Report 2
Technical Report 2 reviews the existing floor system utilized by George Pearl Hall and compares it to three alternative floorsystems. The existing floor system is a composite metal deck on all floor slabs. The proposed floor systems are:
- Pre-Cast Hollow Core Plank on Steel Beams
- Concrete Waffle Slab
- Post Tensioned Concrete Flat Plate
Technical Report 3
Technical Report 3 contains an in-depth analysis of the lateral force resisting system of George Pearl Hall in Albuquerque, NM. In order to evaluate the existing lateral system, a simplified computer structural model was constructed using ETABS.
