Abstract

The need for providing car parking within apartment buildings often lead to a situation where different grid arrangements exist in the parking and apartment floors. In most cases, a setback is also present to accommodate this change over. This requires the use of a transfer system such as a transfer plate or transfer beams. In mixed development, there is a possibility to change the location of the transfer floor. This paper explores the added advantage of using a transfer plate in such situations due to its outrigger behaviour and how it changes when its location is changed. A case study of a highrise apartment building is used to demonstrate different trends in outrigger behaviour with respect to dynamic wind and earthquake loading.
