Abstract

This paper discusses the validation of two models of a five-floor concrete building located in Taiwan. The building supports a 10-m high self-supporting lattice telecommunication tower on its rooftop. The purpose of modelling is to assess the functionality of the tower and operational and functional components attached to the building during and after earthquakes. Monitoring data available includes 18 floor acceleration records at various levels from the basement to the roof, and three acceleration records at the tower mid-height. The combined building-tower structure was modelled using the commercial software SAP2000. Dynamic time history analyses were performed using basement acceleration records from the 1999 Chi Chi earthquake. The calculated floor and tower accelerations are compared to the recorded data. Of particular interest are the amplification of the floor accelerations along the building height, from the basement to the roof, and the dynamic amplification of the tower response with respect to the response at roof level.
