Abstract [en]

The Tubed Mega Frame is a new structure concept for high-rise buildings which is developed by Tyréns in Sweden. The Tubed Mega Frame consists of large hollow vertical shafts, mega columns, and perimeter walls. In a series of in-depth structural studies, the global response of the system as well as the detailed design of the mega columns and the perimeter walls have been investigated. The studies have been performed on an 800 m high prototype building. Parallel to these studies, the feasibility of the construction process has been the objective in another investigation. The chosen structural material for the Tubed Mega Frame is reinforced high-strength concrete. The conclusions from the studies show that the Tubed Mega Frame is a potentially feasible structural system with high-efficiency for high-rise buildings.
