    Preface:

    In the past decades, with the development of construction technology and computer analysis methods, extensively tall and complex structures, such as Burj Khalifa, Taipei 101 , the Bird's Nest, etc., have been built. The demand from the construction market requires that a civil engineer has the ability to design and analyze these challenging structures. The author has been working in the industry and the academia for many years.

    As a professional engineer, I have been working on a variety of tall and complex structures, such as the Shard, the tallest building in West Europe, the scheme design of Nakheel Tower (1 -km-tall building, designed to be the tallest building in the world, project is on hold) , etc. I noticed that most practicing engineers as well as current college or university students lack the knowledge on the design and analysis of tall and complex structures. Therefore, a textbook conveying the knowledge of design and analysis of this type of structures is increasingly important.

    The aim of this book is to provide engineers and students with knowledge on the design principles and analysis methods oftall and complex structures, the effective way to model these types of structures using the conventional commercial software, and the theories and design principles that underpin the relevant analysis. This book has been written to serve as a textbook for college and university students and also as a reference book for practicing engineers.

    This book discuses almost all types oftall building systems and other complex structural forms such as long-span structures, tensile structures, tensegrity structures, offshore oil platforms, offshore wind turbine, etc. It covers the structural design problems, such as lateral stability analysis, earthquake analysis, wind engineering, foundation design for tall buildings, nonlinear geometric analysis and form finding method for tensile structures and tensegrity, multiphysics modeling for fire safety, fluid structure interaction for offshore structures, etc.
