The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) is proud to be a co-sponsor of this superbly illustrated book on the construction of concrete buildings.  Reinforced Concrete Design of Tall Buildings provides a practical perspective on all aspects of reinforced concrete used in the design of structures, with particular focus on tall and ultra-tall buildings.Written by Dr. Bungale S. Taranath, P.E., S.E., this work explains the fundamental principles and state-of-the-art tech-nologies required to build vertical structures, as sound as they are eloquent. Dozens of cases studies of tall buildingsthroughout the world, many designed by Dr. Taranath, provide in-depth insight on why and how specific structural system choices are made.

The book bridges the gap between two approaches: one based on intuitive skills and structural engineering experience, and the other based on computer modelingand analytical techniques.  Examining the results when experiential intuition marries unfathomable precision, this book discusses:

• The latest building codes, including ASCE/SEI 7-05, IBC-06/09, ACI 318-05/08, and ASCE/SEI 41-06
• Recent developments in studies of seismic vulnerability and retrofit design
•  Earthquake hazard mitigation technology,including seismic base isolation, passive energy dissipation, and damping systems
• Lateral bracing concepts and gravity-resisting systems
• Performance based design trends
• Dynamic response spectrum and equivalent lateral load procedures.
