This publication is a collection of 12 papers detailing the new and definitive techniques that have made possible the construction of milestone buildings in high-rise construction. The "Chicago style" of construction and the concepts developed by the Chicago design and construction teams in the science of high-rises are covered in this publication. Topics covered include: high-rise system developments in concrete; prestressed concrete in high-rise construction; recent developments in deep foundations for high-rise buildings; and simplified design of slender unbraced columns. Analysis and Design of High-Rise Concrete Buildings offers a wealth of information on concrete technology such as high strength, lightweight, fiber reinforced, corrosion-resistant, and impermeable concretes that have been utilized to make possible some of the tallest buildings in the world.
