Structural Configurations and Economic Performance Comparison of Multi-Storey and High-Rise Steel Three-Dimensional Garages
Development of multi-story and high-rise steel three-dimensional (3D) garages is an effective way to solve the parking problem in modern cities. In this paper, several types of multi-story and high-rise steel 3D garages are presented. The structural configurations and design parameters of the 3D garages, such as structural planar layout, storey height and limit value of horizontal displacement, are analyzed. Then the economic performances of the steel 3D garages are compared and their suitable storey numbers are obtained.
