Developing an effective lateral load resisting system is therefore one of the greatest challenges for structural engineers designing tall slender towers.
Ghosh, seismic design engineer for the Portland Cement Association, Skokie, IL, and adjunct professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, says most of the spectacular failures in Northridge happened because parts of the buildings designed only for gravity could not follow the movement of the lateral load resisting system. "The code very specifically states that the gravity systems must be able to retain their load carrying capacity as they deform together with the lateral load resisting system.
The lateral load resisting system for such building configuration comprises moment resisting frames and shear (or core) walls.
The structure was fabricated in two local shops and quickly erected without extensive special inspection required by welded lateral load resisting systems.
