Monitoring of Building Motion
Occupants of tall buildings and slender towers can experience uncomfortable motions and accelerations. At GWE, we predict structural accelerations based on wind tunnel testing and analysis of theoretical building properties. These techniques provide us with the initial estimates of motions. Later, we can perform full-scale measurements on the completed structure to validate our predictions. Finally, we use the information gathered through predictive modelling and physical measurement to mitigate uncomfortable accelerations.
GWE staff have practical experience monitoring the motions of buildings and structures, the knowledge to design cost-effective damping devices, and the judgement to apply solutions to mitigate excess accelerations where required. We use state-of-the-art technologies to monitor, retrieve, and analyze essential structural properties and structure response data.
