Description: Daley Center Building. This large steel frame building is made of Cor-Ten steel. Of interest here is the use of heavy plate girders of the type used in bridge construction. In this case, in contrast to that of GoddenA67, shear forces are high and shear stiffeners are used throughout. (Chicago, Illinois)
