Abstract: This dissertation aims at researching the vibration and dynamic response of a tall building using wireless sensors. The result from finite element method (FEM) and the field test will be compared to validate the performance of a wireless sensor network in a tall building. The New Headquarter of Shenzhen Stock Exchange (NHSSE) is taken as an engineering paradigm. The dissertation consists of three main parts: Part 1 introduces the research background, the review of the relative papers, and the methods which will be used in this dissertation; Part 2 is to introduce the engineering paradigm and makes a combination analysis between field test results and finite element method results to validate the feasibility of the research; Part 3 are summaries, conclusions and future directions. Part I includes the first three chapters. Chapter 1 introduces the background and objectives of this research. Chapter 2 reviews the Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) and Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). Chapter 3 introduces the methodologies used in this dissertation. Part 2 is the main part in the dissertation including three chapters. Chapter 4 introduces the overview of the NHSSE and the WSN system for NHSSE in detail. Chapter 5 makes a modal analysis of the NHSSE in FEM and gets the modal properties. Chapter 6 will describe the field test in details and analyze the data from the field test, and then compare the results with that from FEM to validate the feasibility of the research. Part 3 (chapter 7) is the last part of the dissertation. Summaries, conclusions and the future directions will be described in this chapter.
