Abstract

The Canton Tower (formerly named Guangzhou New TV Tower) of 610 m high has been instrumented with a long-term structural health monitoring (SHM) system consisting of more than 700 sensors. Under the auspices of the Asian-Pacific Network of Centers for Research in Smart Structures Technology, an SHM benchmark problem for high-rise structures has been developed by taking the Canton Tower as the host structure. It aims to provide an international platform for direct comparison of various modal identification, model updating, and SHM algorithms with the use of real-world data from a large-scale structure. The development of a reduced-order finite element model (FEM) which serves as a baseline model for the benchmark study and field measurement data acquired from the instrumented structure, which is provided for modal identification and model updating studies, are detailed in this paper.
