Abstract: A reduction procedure for load distribution in asymmetric tall buildings comprising stiffening elements such as frames and shear walls (both planar and core walls) is presented. The building is assumed to be divided into a number of segments, each segment spanning a number of storeys. Within each segment three reference floors are chosen, and the equations of equilibrium of the building are formed with respect to the deflections at the reference floors. The load distribution at the reference floors among various elements is first obtained. The loads at the reference floors of the stiffening elements are then replaced by an equivalent distributed loading, from which loads at the floor levels are obtained. The procedure yields sufficiently accurate results, and requires CPU time and computer storage locations which are only a fraction of those needed in the standard procedure.
