Diagrid structures as load-bearing systems of buildings

Building constructions, buildings and structures

The article is devoted to one of the tendencies of modern high-rise construction - diagrid bearing structures. Such type of load-bearing system have become a popular solution in recent decades for buildings with different functional purposes, shapes, heights and spans, due to their simultaneous constructive efficiency and architectural expressiveness. Also diagrid structures are able to adapt and provide structural support to a wide range of non-rectilinear geometric shapes. The author considers the history of development and the prerequisites for the application of diagonal-grid shell systems as the main structural framework of buildings, including unique ones. The main projects with the use of diagrid structural systems as well as studies related to similar structures were analyzed. The main directions in the construction of high-rise buildings were disassembled
