Title: New RC Design Guidelines for High-Rise Reinforced Concrete Buildings using High-Strength Materials
Author(s): S. Otani, M. Teshigawara, M. Murakami and T. Okada
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 405-422
Keywords: Earthquake-resistant structures; high-strength concrete; reinforced
Abstract:The increase in the number of high-rise reinforced concrete buildings has accelerated the research on the manufacturing and development of high strength materials. Ministry of Construction, Japanese Government, organized a national research project from 1988 to 1993 for “the Development of Advanced Reinforced Concrete Buildings using High-strength Concrete and Reinforcement.” This paper introduces the earthquake resistant design guidelines developed as a part of this technical project. The scope is limited to the building height of 200 m, the concrete strength of 60 MPa, and the steel strength of 700 MPa.
