Executive Summary (PDF)

The thesis report sumarizes the Oklahoma University Children's Medical Office Building existing reinforced concrete structure to provide a context for the structural redesign. The structure was redesigned using composite steel for the gravity system. The lateral system was also redesigned, incorporating both steel bracecd frames and steel moment frames. Two breadths were also conducted as part of the thesis research. The first breadth analyzes the potential for an extensive green roof to be used instead of the existing roof. The second breadth analyzes the cost and schedule differences between the existing structural system and the new system.

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 in-progress for this thesis project.
