Advances in Erection Engineering for High-Rise Steel Structures [R4]

With all-steel high-rises becoming more prevalent in modern construction, the desire to build higher and faster creates increasingly common challenges for erection engineers. Pushing erection ahead of OSHA limits, tying tower cranes to slender high-rise structures, and generating and resisting wind demands on an unclad steel skeleton require engineering solutions that may not apply to a traditional tower with a concrete core. We'll explore these challenges and describes engineering approaches that can facilitate constructing these complicated and unique structures.
