Many interesting issues are put forth in this article. Realy this is kind of a revolution to work a composite structural idear transforming steel towers into a composite structure this way.
Now I know people get boring when pointing to their own private pony, audience get anoyed when you keep turning any discussion the same direction every time as I do, -------- but how could it be different with realy huge constructions, that cheaper materials and other construction princips would lead into the composite idears we allready se with other huge structures.
Just need to point to the fact, that with an intergratet framework, you will se no floors pancake as each frame are supportet by all others if projectet by a skilled engineer, an elevator sharft will share same frame as the floor above and hollow steel tubes would carry both water or air ; you could even make it carry both.
Beside ---- as a last issue before you say "here he go again" , the fact is, that if you want an intergratet framework to offer tree times the shape allready , you just make it into a honeycomb structure by panels ,castet on spot or as sheets.
