Since 2004, Taipei 101 has been a significant feature of Taipei's skyline.
It held the title of the world's tallest building until January 2010, when Burj Khalifa assumed the title.
- Cladding wind loads
- Structural wind loads
- Emergency ventilation system for social plaza area of building
- Design, fabrication, installation, and commissioning of tuned mass dampers (TMD) for the building and its pinnacle
- Design of monitoring system to provide ongoing assessment of the structure and TMDs
- Testing of various corner designs lead to saw tooth shape, which showed reduced crosswind oscillations for building
- Detailed wind loading information contributed to optimized structural and cladding design
- Need for supplementary damping was determined
- Confirmed adequacy of ventilation system for atrium
- Building Tuned Mass Damper (TMD) shown to control wind-induced lateral motions for occupant comfort
- Pinnacle TMDs (two) shown to reduce cumulative fatigue damage to structure due to wind-induced motion
- Monitoring System provides ongoing health assessment of the structure and the TMDs
