Many high-rise buildings have been constructed in the late 20th century, particularly in Western Pacific Rim countries. Some examples of these include the Grand Gateway at Xi Hui and the Tomorrow Square, both in Shanghai, the Xiamen Post and Telecommunication Building in China, the Petronas (twin) Towers in Malaysia and the Shanghai World Financial Center. The last three are well over 1000 feet in height, with the Petronas Towers measuring 1483 feet tall and the Shanghai World Financial Center standing 1509 feet tall. While these certainly represent the ultimate challenges in the structural aspects of buildings, challenges remain the in the structural aspects of buildings at various heights. This volume is a comprehensive treatment of the issues and the advanced techniques involved in building and bridge structures. Illustrative examples of the techniques involved are included.
