Development of Multiple Hollow Tube System for Super-Tall Slender Buildings: Part II Numerical Development and Analysis
This paper describes the numerical development and analysis of a new Multiple Hollow-Tube (MHT) structural system for super-tall buildings subjected to dynamic seismic loading, for a subject structure of aspect ratio 12:1. Following on from the principles outlined in Part I of this two-paper series, the seismic modelling results are presented and examined to verify the principles underlying the MHT concept, and manifest fundamental design shifts from stiffness based design to dynamical design. The practical implications of this concept for super-tall building design are also discussed.
