Sensing solutions for assessing and monitoring super-tall towers

Y.Q. Ni,    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

Abstract:

The Canton Tower (CT) is a super-tall structure with a total height of 610 m. To ensure the safety and serviceability of this landmark structure during construction and operation, a sophisticated long-term structural health monitoring (SHM) system consisting of more than 700 sensors of 16 types has been designed and implemented for real-time monitoring of the structure at both in-construction and in-service stages. It provides a unique engineering paradigm for monitoring and assessing mega-structures using sensory technology, and a test-bed for an SHM benchmark study of super-tall structures with use of real-world ...
