Stability and Loads

by Rubin M. Zallen,
David B. Peraza,

Part of: Engineering Considerations for Lift-Slab Construction


This chapter examines stability and loads. Topics include stability and lateral load resistance during construction; effective lengths of cantilever columns; effect on stability of frame action of temporary slab to column connections; second order effects and lateral load resistance; combined bending and compression of lift-slab columns; lateral load resisting systems; loads during construction; and design methods and safety factors.
