Abstract

This project investigated the design and analysis of various structural systems for a correctional facility, including an administrative office and detention center. Structural design using parametric analysis of alternative steel and reinforced concrete structural systems were conducted for gravity and lateral load resisting systems using IBC 2003. Performance analyses were generated based upon economy, feasibility, constructability, and serviceability. Additional study topics included foundation design, exterior wall design, fire considerations, and site design.
