Abstract

The One Rincon Hill Tower in San Francisco is the tallest concrete core shear wall structure in California. After completion of the construction, the building was extensively instrumented in 2012 with 72 sensors in a joint effort by the California Strong Motion Instrumentation Program of the California Geological Survey and the National Strong Motion Program of the U.S. Geological Survey. This paper describes the sensor locations in the building and the instrumentation objectives. Data of the building ambient vibration obtained by the instrumentation system and results of preliminary analysis are also presented and discussed.
