Seismic Design For High-Rise Structures
In this study, the construction of high-rising buildings that lies within the geologically complex region of San
Francisco, is investigated. After completing the geological research of the Bay area, for the seismicity testing, a model
structure of 28 story building (The Orion Tower) is constructed from balsa wood which the woods are connected to each
other by glue.
