Abstract: Field measurement data on wind velocities and wind-induced acceleration responses at the top of the 492 m high Shanghai World Financial Center (SWFC) under normal climate conditions are studied. Characteristics of the mean wind speeds and turbulence intensities, gust factors, power spectral densities, and turbulence integral scales of the fluctuating wind speed are analyzed in different observation time intervals. Power spectral densities of wind-induced acceleration are also investigated. The basic natural fr…
