Paper Title
Seismic Design For High-Rise Structures

In this study, the construction of high-rising buildings that lies within the geologically complex region of San Francisco, is investigated. After completing the geological research of the Bay area, for the seismicity testing, a model structure of 28 story building (The Orion Tower) is constructed from balsa wood which the woods are connected to each other by glue.
