Unformatted text preview: L. Prieto-Portar - 2008 EGN EGN-5439 The Design of Tall Buildings 5439 The Design of Tall Buildings Lecture 10 Lecture 10 ASCE 7 ASCE 7-- 02 Solved Problem #3: 02 Solved Problem #3: Analytical Method 2 for Tall Buildings Analytical Method 2 for Tall Buildings The building for this third example is a 14-story office building in Tampa. It is 100 feet wide and 200 feet long and 160 feet tall, including a 3 foot parapet. The structure is a reinforced concrete rigid frame, with each floor and the roof providing a diaphragm reaction to lateral loads. Each floor is 11 feet high, and is clad with two glazing panels 5 6 high and 5 feet wide (aluminum mullions are spaced 5 feet on-center). The glazing is resistant to wind-borne debris impact. For simplicity, the office building is assumed to be in an Exposure B. It is not an essential facility, nor will it be occupied by 300 people in a single area at one time. Therefore, it is a Category II (see Table 1-1 on the next slide). Example #3 will use the same location in downtown Tampa as in Examples #1 and #2. For this Example #3 site, use V = 120 mph.
