This paper presents a feasibility study for a codified treatment of wind-induced dynamic response of tall buildings in Hong Kong. The most up-to-date code-based dynamic approach is used to evaluate alongwind and crosswind responses of three typical tall buildings under Hong Kong wind conditions. The results from this dynamic approach are then compared with those determined by the quasi-steady approach of the Code of Practice on Wind Effects Hong Kong–1983 (the Hong Kong wind loading code, thereafter). The serviceability performances are finally discussed in terms of human comfort criteria associated with acceleration response.
