Skyscrapper Design

SkyScraper design or Tall building design performed with conceptual design, analysis, preliminary design and optimization to carry out different loads on an structure. Structural design of a skyscraper should be focused proper analysis and design of a tall building to make it stand safely, able to function without excessive deflections, cracking or failure of fixtures. Participants will be introduced with various case studies to understand Structural building engineering and associated software used in tall building design. Participants will learn to analyze different problem statements given to them and so increase proficiency in key civil engineering concepts.
