Paper Title:
Field Measurement of Boundary Layer Wind Characteristics and Wind Loads on Super-Tall Building
  Abstract

Significance of full-scale experiments, analyzing wind and pressure fields in the proximity or on tall buildings, is evident from the attention that has been dedicated by researchers to these programs in the recent past. In the south and southeastern regions of China this problem is of particular relevance due to the presence of Typhoons. This paper presents some recent results measured from a super tall building located near the coast of Xiamen, Fujian province, China. In the first part of this study, attention is devoted to the characterization of the wind field atop a super-tall building; a comprehensive investigation on wind velocity and turbulence characteristics during the passage of Typhoon Fanapi is summarized. In the second part, results associated with the mean pressure and mean pressure coefficient were concentrated on the identification of direction-dependent pressure characteristics is analyzed.
