Aerodynamic Shape Optimization of Shenzhen Kingkey Financial Tower
A study of approach aerodynamic shape optimization of a high-rise building, Shenzhen Kingkey financial tower, was performed in a boundary layer wind tunnel at Shantou University. Building shape has significant effects on the wind load forcing on the structure. The peak overturning moments about x-axis and the peak accelerations at the top of building are presented in this paper. Compared with the experimental results, one case is considered as the optimal case for structural design.
