Design and Construction of Sydney Tower

The paper describes the evolution of Sydney Tower, introduces some examples of analyses involved in the study of its static and dynamic response, and finally presents some details of construction procedures. The structure of Sydney Tower is possibly unique in the sense that, having been 'tailored' to suit a particular set of circumstances and requirements,it offers a number of unconventional characteristics that make it appear distinctly different from other world-renowned towers. It can be characterised as a free-standing, cantilevered, post-tensioned, guyed steel structure. Alexander Wargon
