Life-cycle cost-based design of wind excited tall buildings

Laura Ierimonti
In this thesis a practical design tool based on Life-Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) is proposed for wind-sensitive structures. A cost-based approach can broaden the perspective of managers and stakeholders in order to choose the best design solution on the basis of the monetary losses expected during the structure lifetime. In this context, an automated and computationally efficient procedure named Life-Cycle Cost Wind Design (LCCWD) is developed for the design of tall structures. All the key...
