A 30-story building located in Taipei City was instrumented with anemometers and accelerometers and velocity sensors. The wind speed and building motions were monitored for several typhoons during
2005-2006. The building dynamic characteristics identified from the field data and the wind induced building responses were presented in this paper. Furthermore, FEM model of the target building was built and calibrated with respect to field data. Aerodynamic wind tunnel tests of the target building were performed in a well simulated wind tunnel environment. The building responses based on wind tunnel test show good agreement with field measurements.
