Abstract

This paper presents the strain monitoring and stress analysis of Guangzhou New Television Tower during the construction stage, particularly addressing the following issues: 1) temperature effect on the measured strain data; 2) strain response of the Tower to the extreme loading events including Typhoon, earthquake and unfavorable construction loading; 3) stress development at critical positions; and 4) finite element analysis and comparison with the measurement. Strain responses under the natural hazards show that the structure is in the safe condition. The model prediction is in a good agreement with the measurement data at different construction stages. The exercise verifies the effectiveness and importance of the construction monitoring for such a super-tall structure.
