Differential axial shortening in high rise buildings with concrete filled tube columns

Samarakkody, Dilrukshie (2016) Differential axial shortening in high rise buildings with concrete filled tube columns. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research developed and applied a comprehensive technique to evaluate the Differential Axial Shortenings (DASs) in composite high rise buildings. The findings of this research will help to reduce the adverse effects of DASs and facilitate safer designs of buildings. A method, based on the vibration characteristics of the building, to update the initial predictions during the service stage of the building has also been developed and applied.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
