Interest continues to develop in the design and construction of high-rise towers and tall buildings, structures with heights ranging from 75m to 500m and even more. This volume presents the papers from the third in a series of international conferences on the subject, organised by the International Federation of High-rise Structures. The papers have been drawn together under the grand theme of the Conquest of Vertical Space in the 21st Century.
The conference has been organised by the UK's Concrete Society, and sponsored by the IFHS and the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat and the Fdration Internationale de la Prcontrainte (FIP). This prestigious collaboration has brought forth a body of high quality practical and research papers.
