Abstract

The specially designed seismic monitoring system is deployed on high-rise buildings in Moscow. The system is capable of recording of the natural oscillations of the structures, with special attention to the angular motions, data processing to recover the natural motions from the micro seismic background noise and comparison of observed and theoretically predicted motion modes. Based on the comparison results the more accurate theoretical models and its software realizations for the building behavior can be developed. Both linear and rotational oscillations related to eigenmodes excited primarily by wind flow and oscillations of the building structure have been observed. The long-term permanent monitoring of the 44-store building in Moscow allowed to observe the creep of the concrete properties (the eigenmode frequencies changed by 20%) and seasonal variation (about 2% changes over a year).
