The article focuses on the classification of structural systems of multi-storey buildings based on four main (or primary) systems fundamentally different by the type of vertical load-bearing structures. Also a rational application of various structural systems of multi-storey buildings has been proposed as a result of the analysis of earlier performed studies and real-world experience of designing. The usage of combined structural systems that consist of various combinations of primary systems is examined.15 types of structural systems can be detached from the variety of primary and combined systems.The growing number of storeys of multi-storey buildings together with the growth of urban population and increasing availability of housing, as well as limited and cramped urban area, was justified. 10 of the most widely used structural systems were analyzed with a brief analysis of their features to ensure the tridimensional rigidity.The vertical distribution of functions in multifunctional buildings, as well the forecast for the percentage distribution of functions in high-rise buildings were also presented in the article. These guidelines can be used by designers on trial design stage for choosing the most rational structural system of multi-storey buildings of different heights.

The authors modified classical dummy-unit load method by adding elastic pliable foundation in the computation scheme. System attributes (internal force and foundation settlements) were obtained in symbolic form. Sensitivity functions were computed as direct system attributes differential with respect to a specific parameter. The developed method analyzes the structures’ properties with pliable foundation with sensitivity functions on the entire set of parameters. Using the above method, we observed the properties of the three-bay single-storey flat frame, computed sensitivity coefficients of a relative difference foundation settlements and the maximum bending moment of design frame parameters. Structural analysis without considering pliable base corresponds to a model with incompressible foundation. Practically such grounds are rare. Pliable base leads to displacement of the foundations, which in turn changes the stress-strain state of structures. Calculation of foundation settlements as freestanding unrelated elements also leads to errors. In general, settlement of any foundation leads to additional forces in the elements of the entire system, and hence to additional settlement of the remaining foundations. This issue is especially important for frame structures with freestanding foundations, such as joint foundation settlements caused by the stiffness of the structural elements of the frame. Thus, the analysis of foundation and frame elements collaboration based on sensitivity functions helps to assess the impact of system parameters on its properties. Purposeful reduction of the design parameters of the frame elements reduced the relative differential foundation settlements from 0.00213 to 0.00197 and the maximum bending moment from 781.2 kN∙m to 738.6 kN∙m.

ABSTRACT Introduction. The subject of the study is the kinematic variability and deformations of a planar statically-determinate elastic truss with a horizontal bolt, lateral supporting trusses and a cross-shaped grid under the action of various types of static loads. The structure has three movable supports and one fixed support. Objectives - derivation of formulas giving the dependence of the deflection of the structure in the middle of the span and the displacement of one of the three movable supports from the dimensions, load and number of panels; analysis of the kinematic variability and derivation of the analytical dependence of the forces in the rods of the middle of the span from the number of panels. Materials and methods. Forces in the rods of the truss are calculated in symbolic form by cutting out nodes using the Maple symbolic and numeric computational environment. In order to calculate the deflection, the Maxwell - Mohr formula was used. Calculation formulas for the deflection and displacement of the support were derived using the induction method based on the results of analytical calculations of a number of trusses with a different number of panels in the crossbar and lateral support trusses. The special operators of the genfunc package for managing the rational generating functions of the Maple system were used to identify and solve the recurrence equations satisfied by the sequences of coefficients of the formulas for deflection and forces. It is assumed that all the rods of the truss have the same rigidity. Results. Several variants of loads on the truss are considered. A combination of panel numbers is found in which the truss becomes kinematically variable. The phenomenon is confirmed by the corresponding scheme of possible velocities. All required dependences have a polynomial form by the number of panels. The curves of the dependence of the deflection on the number of panels and on the height of the truss are constructed in order to illustrate the analytical solutions. Conclusions. The proposed scheme of a statically determinate truss is regular, allowing a fairly simple analytic solution of the deflection problem. The curves of the identified dependencies have significant areas of abrupt changes, which can be used in problems of optimising the design by weight and rigidity.
