CTBUH-Elsevier Virtual Journal on Tall Building Research

CTBUH and Elsevier have combined their resources to deliver a selection of research publications drawn from their respective archives through a series entitled The CTBUH-Elsevier Virtual Journal on Tall Building Research. Each issue focuses on a specific topic and compiles the very best research papers available to help facilitate investigation on that particular theme.

The concept for this online journal was inspired by the 2014 CTBUH publication, the Roadmap on the Future Research Needs of Tall Buildings. This Roadmap is aimed at identifying priority topics and gaps in the field of tall building research. To further facilitate third-party research on the Roadmap-highlighted topics, as well as on other important subjects, The Virtual Journal on Tall Building Research distills the best papers around selected priority themes.
