Proceedings of the Seminar on Reinforced Concrete High-Rise Buildings in Japan with Special Concern on Aseismic Design of Beam-Column Joints

Yukinobu Kurose and James O. Jirsa

1987

As part of a collaborative project on beam-column joint performance involving researchers in New Zealand, Japan, China, and the United States, a special seminar was arranged in Tokyo to acquaint researchers and design engineers with Japanese design and construction practice and philosophy in reinforced concrete high-rise buildings. The purpose of this report is to disseminate information from that seminar to designers and researchers involved with reinforced-concrete ductile frame and researchers involved with reinforced-concrete ductile frame construction techniques are complemented with a preface giving the background of reinforced concrete high-rise buildings in Japan. The focus of the seminar and this report is on beam-column joints.
