Wind Engineering in general

Several wind engineering techniques were employed into the design of the tower to control the dynamic response of the tower under wind loading by disorganizing the vortex shedding formation (frequency and direction) along the building height and tuning the dynamic characteristics of the building to improve its dynamic behaviour and to prevent lock-in vibration
