Tall Building Design

The design of tall buildings essentially involves conceptual design, approximate analysis, preliminary design and optimization to safely carry different loads acting on structure. The structural design for a skyscraper must ensure that the building is able to stand up safely, able to function without excessive deflections or movements which may cause fatigue of structural elements, cracking or failure of fixtures, fittings or partitions, or discomfort for occupants. Tall Building Design Workshop primarily aims at educating the participants about analysis and design of tall buildings.

Workshop Benefits

The objective of this workshop is to teach the approach towards tall building design and the corresponding level of evaluation with increase in complexity of a structure. Participants will be made to evaluate different problem statements given to them.

Our workshop primarily aims at educating the participants about analysis and design of tall buildings. The students would also be introduced to software used in civil engineering design. The participants would work hands-on on analyzing and designing a tall building using the software. With the help of various case studies, the participants would be made to understand the implication of tall building design in real world.

GIS (Geographic Information System )

GIS is a system intended to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, manage, and present all types of geographical data. In the simplest terms, GIS is the merging of cartography, statistical analysis, and database technology.

A GIS can be thought of as a system—it digitally creates and manipulatesspatial areas that may be for jurisdictional purpose or application-oriented. Generally, a GIS is custom-designed for an organization. Hence, a GIS developed for an application, jurisdiction, enterprise, or purpose may not be necessarily interoperable or compatible with a GIS that has been developed for some other application, jurisdiction, enterprise, or purpose.

Workshop Benefits

Geographic Information System (GIS) technology has predominantly changed how our world is analyzed and modeled. Be it small businesses, multinational companies, agriculture-based companies, educational institutions, or maps guiding a lost individual- GIS finds application in many areas. The rapid growth rate of data poses the huge challenge to its interpretation. GIS provides an easy and more efficient way to interpret geospatial data – to create a topographic map with elevation, angles and other features.
