Paper Abstract

While the field measurement of wind speed at buildings and towers has been made by numerous investigators, the direct measurement of wind pressure at high-rise structures was seldom reported. Up to now, the information regarding wind pressure distribution above the maximum gradient wind level (it is 450 m stipulated in the Chinese code) has never been experimentally obtained. This paper presents a field monitoring investigation on the measurement of wind pressure and its distribution at the Canton Tower of 600 m high above the maximum gradient wind level during the typhoon Kaitak.
